THE LAST IM­PRE­SARIO (M)

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIE REVIEWS -

A fas­ci­nat­ing doc­u­men­tary that fo­cuses on one sub­ject but has many tales to tell. Bri­tish pro­ducer Michael White was one of the most con­nected in­di­vid­u­als in show­biz. How­ever, while he made his name as a risk-tak­ing en­tre­pre­neur, his pur­suit of fast women and good times re­mained his pri­or­ity. As first-time film­maker Gra­cie Otto ze­roes in on White’s ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar move­ments, a sober­ing por­trait emerges. White par­tic­i­pates in the doco, reluc­tantly at times. It’s a haunt­ing study of a man who was al­ways in the right place at the right time, but per­haps was never re­ally there.

Michael White and Jack Ni­chol­son
