John Carpenter: Fear Is Just The Beginning . . . The Man and His Movies
Chronicles the work of cult director John Carpenter through interviews with him and his associates, with emphases on the earlier work.
Decent hour long made for tv documentary on John Carpenter. Some good information, mostly it's fun to watch for Carpenter and a couple other select interviewees.
This is a decent enough documentary about JC. It's only an hour long so it cannot delve too deep into the subject matter. I was disappointed that every film didn't get the same attention as Halloween. I imagine if the others films did it would be about a 3 hour run-time. This kind of doc. is great for those mildly interested. It's not for hardcore film fans who know this basic material already. It's a nice reminder that JC is an amazingly talented filmmaker and composer, but it really doesn't have much meat on the bones.
