It’s an unconventional portrait that I wish had been written by someone without quite such a glib sensibility (though, again, I admire that Goldman would later so openly dissect his most celebrated work; his nonfiction books are all terrific, especially Hype and Glory which remains the best behind-the-scenes look at a Cannes jury) and directed by someone with a better feel for the outdoors…or at least by someone who’d veto a bike-riding montage set to a Bacharach & David tune.
