I was fascinated by John DeLorean back in the day, but the full movie seemed to drag and didn’t capture the excitement that had existed about him. And the addition of Alec Baldwin, whom I usually enjoy, was a mistake in my opinion – especially the “outtakes” of Alec as himself in makeup, talking to the camera. It appears that there wasn’t enough footage of DeLorean, so an actor had to be added in order to provide more dialogue. And there should have been more footage of his gorgeous wife, Cristina – I was a fan of hers and she was more or less skipped over in the film – and no mention of her later success in TV and other areas. All in all, I enjoyed watching the movie online but it could have been so much more, with such interesting subjects to work with.
Fascinating film chronicling a pretty interesting guy, ‘Framing John DeLorean’ is never dull and pretty revealing. While the film is structured as a documentary with a number of involved people as interview subjects, and the film also features reenactments of certain important scenes of DeLorean’s life. In addition, it focuses on behind the scenes footage of the participants of the reenactment scenes with the crew; as well as proving their views on DeLorean out-of-character. Alec Baldwin plays DeLorean in a way only Baldwin can. He mixes in a real story about talking to the man well over a decade ago. This is delightful and well worth the time and definitly worth of free download.
