  • This fascinating show-business documentary brings its subject to life, warts and all, in a way that would no doubt have thoroughly pleased him. show more

  • This material cries out for big-budget treatment by a real master like Paul Thomas Anderson or Martin Scorsese. show more

  • Évocateur is never less than watchable. At the same time, you have to wonder who’s going to watch it. In an era when fame seems measured in increments even shorter than Warhol’s 15 minutes, a 91-minute documentary about a bug-eyed, chain-smoking sociopath who soared high and fell fast so long ago smacks of folly and misdirected energy, like trying to make a biography out of a footnote. show more

    Yeah, I remember Alan Burke. But the way I remember it he wasn\'t on for long? Or was he? Seems to me he was thrown off the show or something all of a sudden.
