Movie Reviews

Not very informative

"I thought finally a biography on Kris Kristofferson. It seems that by watching this dvd, you get more questions than answers. The beginning is okay, they talk about the early days but the documentary lacks early day viewing material. Would of been nice to see Kris perform in the late 60's early 70's. Then they talk about a few of his bigger movies like A star is born and Heaven's gate but no mention of his other great movies like Convoy, Welcome home and Songwriter. There's barely any mention of what he was up to during the late 70's and 80's.I just think that more effort could of been put into this project and treat the fans to something decent. We only get some of the story. Hopefully something better will come along someday."
Excellent Look at the Life of a Compelling Figure

"I highly recommend the purchase of this video. It goes into superb detail and covers Kristofferson's background as a Rhodes Scholar, Golden Gloves boxer, his humble start and massive contribution to country music, and his varied and interesting movie career. Along the way, Kristofferson allows access to some of the watershed moments and turning points in a life well lived. His conversation with a Mexican boxer after he lost a match was indeed intriguing in how it had such a huge impact on his life. His study of William Blake also allows us to take a good look at the foundation of his soul and world view. Perhaps the strongest moments in the video include his homage to Nashville and the massive risks he took to get his career started, his commentary on the deaths of Janis Joplin and others who didn't survive the road as he did, and interviews with his friends and colleagues Johnny Cash and Dennis Hopper. Overall, this is a wonderful video that shouldn't be missed!!"
