This searing documentary, narrated by William H. Macy, traces the highs and lows, the scandals and celebrations, the tragedies and triumphs that shaped this phenomenal period in cinema history. Adapted from Peter Biskind's literary phenomenon, the book that blew the lid off both Hollywood and the lives of the infamous, celebrated "movie brats".

Excellent documentry on the Director led period in 1970's Hollywood when the studios had lost their way and handed control of movies to the Autor generation - which started out briliantly and boldly making some of the greatest movies ever and ended up in a blizzard of cocaine and self-indulgence - by which time the rise of the blockbuster handed control back to the studios.
Lots of great and painfully honest interviews with archive footage and movie clips that just reminds you how many great movies there were......top stuff
