"Framing John DeLorean": This documentary takes a look at the late car manufacturer (think of the car in "Back to the Future") and explores whether he was a visionary or a grifter. The movie is scheduled play only as a special preview at 8 p.m. on Friday and won't open for a full run until Friday June 14th.
Following are some critical comments:
Elizabeth Weitzman, TheWrap: "Most compelling of all are the interviews with the two people who come closest to answering, or at least addressing, the question that overwhelms this entire project: DeLorean's daughter Kathryn and son Zach."
Owen Gleiberman, Variety: "A tasty and satisfying look at the rise and fall of the self-styled auto magnate of the '70s and '80s…"
Oleg Ivanov, Slant: "John DeLorean has a biography that could have been reverse-engineered from a Hollywood epic about the rise and fall of an auto-industry mogul. The story of his life suggests 'Citizen Kane' set in the world of cars."
Final note: "Framing John DeLorean" also will be available through video on demand beginning Friday.
