Movie Night: Frank Sinatra - All or Nothing At All




Frank Sinatra: All or Nothing At All








SINATRA: All or Nothing at All is an up-close and personal examination of the life, music and career of the legendary entertainer. Told in his own words from hours of archived interviews, along with commentary from those closest to him, the documentary weaves the music and images from Sinatra's life together with rarely seen footage of Sinatra's famous 1971 "Retirement Concert" in Los Angeles. The film's narrative is shaped by Sinatra's song choices for that concert, which Gibney interprets as the singer's personal guide through his own life.












My Thoughts:

I loved this docu-film from beginning to end.

I've loved everything Sinatra since I was a kid and getting to learn the legend in his own words and the words of his loved ones. Viewers get a real look at the ups and downs from the beginning of his life to the end and get a real intimate look at the man who was loved by many and loved many in the duration of his career.

Viewers also get a sense of the man who despite having been surrounded by people all the time and involved in many relationships was a man who was more alone in a crowd than he was by himself.

Sinatra was a man dedicated to his craft for as long as he could hold onto it, a man that made the champion of come backs before he retired one last time, and a man who's music will last the generations.




My Rating:

5 Stars
