review by
Mike Haberfelner


Now I'm pretty sure most exploitiation film fans are pretty well-versed in the biography of Ed Wood, in part thanks of course in part to Tim Burton's Ed Wood and probably also thanks to this documentary when it first came out about quarter of a century ago. And that said, even rewatching this movie after all these years, it's just a charming look back at Wood's career - with a focus on the 1950s and his movies Glen or Glenda, Jail Bait, Bride of the Monster, Plan 9 from Outer Space and Night of the Ghouls as well as his directorial debut Crossroads of Laredo -, pieced together from many interviews with many of his friends, stock players, family and even Bela Lugosi's son. And what really makes this documentary is that it hasn't set out to ridicule the man for his movie's (or his personal) shortcomings nor praise him for achievments he simply didn't achieve but paint a rounded out picture of a man with high aspirations - who sometimes just lacked the necessary talent. In line with that, not all the interviewees have only praise for Wood, in particular Bela Lugosi jr and Vampira Maila Nurmi, which only makes the whole story all the more interesting. So ultimately whether you're into Ed Wood and exploitation cinema or only like stories from yesteryear's Hollywood, you're almost certain to enjoy this one!
