Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me निर्देशक Chiemi Karasawa
This profile of stage and screen veteran Elaine Stritch, shot during her 87th year, isn’t a documentary so much as an improvised star vehicle; she plays to the camera through the entire movie and puts on a hell of a show. The actress has spent so many years delivering eloquent dialogue (having appeared in notable productions by Noel Coward, Edward Albee, and Stephen Sondheim, among many others) that everything she says sounds rhythmic and witty.

Elaine Stritch is quite secure about her professional career. She knows she has amassed enough achievements in theater, film and cabaret that she won’t be forgotten. But through this film what she wants us to remember is how Elaine Stritch faced life and death. And with the help of accompanist Rob Bowman and filmmaker Chiemi Karasawa she does so in the highest and grandest of style. Call it Umberto D: The Musical.

…It’s gratifying beyond words to witness this consummate performer as she feeds off an audience’s energy, turning flubs and forgetfulness continually to her advantage. This is a life lived, perhaps not always well, but certainly to the fullest.
