Kirk Douglas: Before I Forget (2009)

*** (out of 4)

Kirk Douglas was at the age of 92 when he filmed this one-man show, which had him reflecting on his life. Not just the movies but also his family, his memories of childhood and the various struggles that he has faced over the years.

Douglas closes the show talking about how he's ready to "go home" and yet here it is seven years after he filmed this and he's still living. Douglas is certainly one of the legends of Hollywood but he's also had a pretty incredible life away from the screen and this show does a very good job highlighting various aspects of his life. Douglas, who looks to be in excellent form, talks about his memories of his mother, how he got into acting and various other things including his youngest son's death.

If you're a fan of Douglas then you'll certainly want to check this out. We start off with the Academy Awards clip of Steven Spielberg giving him his Lifetime Achievement Award just months after his stroke. There are so many good stories shared here including one segment where he talks about some of the famous people he knew like Jack Lemmon and Burt Lancaster.
