Very Good
Al Hirschfeld is as much an icon of American entertainment as Walt Disney. His line-art caricatures are legendary, and his body of work would crush your foundation. Hirschfeld died in 2003 at the age of 99, and his legacy is dutifully recorded in this loving documentary, which features long stretches of interviews with the then-93-year-old artist, endless shots of his collected works, and commentary from his contemporaries.
