4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not the best Bruce Lee Documentary, 18 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I am Bruce Lee [DVD] (DVD)
I enjoyed 'Iam Bruce Lee' but to be honest it certainly isn't the best Documentary ever released on the master.
It does have some interesting and well balanced interviews with people who either love Bruce Lee or are skeptical of his prowess in Martial Art. Where the Documentary falls down is the typical american style of presentation. For instance, a person will be starting an anecdote and then it cuts to another talking head finishing the anecdote so you never get the full story from the person being interviewed. You also get hit over the head with superimposed titles reminding us of Bruce lees philosophy quotes as they are spoken. Its rather like being treated like a ten year old who is given his first lesson in Bruce lee.
The documentary moves very fast, maybe too fast. Rare stills of Bruce are only glimpsed seconds before cutting away to another talking head. The viewer never gets the chance to enjoy or study them long enough, unless you hit the pause of course. I also found using clips from his films as a narrative to actual moments in Bruce's real life rather cheesy. As for rare footage, there isn't a lot here fans haven't seen before. However, near the end of the documentary there is some brilliant footage shot on the set of 'Enter the dragon'. This is probably from actress Ahna Capri's 8mm movie camera. In one segment we get to see Bruce Lee actually doing a disco style boogie on the 'Enter the dragon' courtyard set. Its fun to watch and also see what a natural dancer he really was!
This footage could be a clue to what is yet to be shown and never seen before, in the up and coming anniversary release of ETD. 'Iam Bruce Lee' is worth watching, but for me, I still rate " How Bruce Lee changed the world" as the ultimate Documentary.
