Great documentary if you can see it.
13 September 2019 | by randomthoughtsofmadnessSee all my reviews

I don't think this has ever been officially released.I had the pleasure of seeing an cut of this at Montreal Comiccon in 2012. This film is an interesting look at Tom's life and career. How he went from special effects master, to actor, to teaching the next generation of practical special effects artists. At the time it needed some tweaking but it was still a very interesting look into the life of an icon. That said, there are not really any huge revelations in this doc. A lot of what's said here has been said elsewhere but it was nice to have everything about Tom's career encapsulated in one source.

It's too bad this thing has not been released yet, I recall there being a Kickstarter to finish the film but it's been listed as "coming soon" since 2015. My guess is that securing the rights to movie clips has either been difficult or cost prohibitive. Sadly, without the visual elements it wouldn't be as visually entertaining since as I said, a lot of what's talked about has been said in many other places.

I'm not sure if this is still being screen anywhere either.
