    Sinatra: All or Nothing at All

    I'm only into the first part (second part tonight) Extremely well done, and interesting. Check it out

    Sinatra speaks for himself through archival materials, with the direction by Gibney and the editing of Sam Pollard, Ben Sozanski, and Anoosh Tertzakian representing the smoothness and sophistication that was Old Blue Eyes’ public signature. With their primary sources remaining offscreen, the behind-the-scenes team effortlessly blends new interviews with old, synthesizing source material of varying quality into a single, velvety narrative.

    Nothing I have heard about him makes me think that he was anything other than a complete asshole.
