Incredible journey of a movie mogul
20 May 2018 | by carlos-42-994029See all my reviews

This documentary takes you through a time warp of the movie industry. It shows a process of passionate filmmakers and studios alike that trusted in their producer's to make great content. That passion didn't always come without a price. This film is funny, thought provoking, inspirational and well made. Everyone in the entertainment industry and anyone with a passion for films and cinema should watch Laddie. It will change the way you view the movie industry as well as the way that you view the people that grow up surrounded by it.
