  • James's rating of the film Casting By

    This talks way too much about Marion Dougherty, especially considering she comes across as quite an unpleasant person at times. Before watching this, I thought it was going to be an in depth look at how casting has changed over the years. It does have some good information and some interesting stories, especially a great one from Jon Voight, but disappointing overall.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Casting By

    FNC '12 Basically a puff piece celebrating casting director extraorinaire Marion Doughery who past away last year. Never a contrary work is spoken exempting the head of the DGA who comes off more than a little pompous here. Full of wonderful clips and rare footage and photographs. Fun for the film buff but lacks depth. A little more history and a little less praising would have gone a long way.
