Livia Manera, shown with Roth, above; the other is William Karel.) Yet everything here is so graceful and easy, with not a subject raised nor a moment shown that in any way rankles, that one has the sense early on and for the duration that certain ground rules have been set and any deviation will not be tolerated.
TrustMovies has never felt that way. But clearly a lot of folk do. I've read but four of Roth's works, and one of the things that this documentary might very well manage is to send viewers, myself included, back to the novels and stories themselves -- which I should think will please Roth immensely.
In addtion to Ms Farrow, those interviewed about Mr. Roth include writers Jonathan Franzen and Nathan Englander, attorney Martin Garbus, a couple more friends and The New Yorker's Claudia Roth Pierpont. All have interesting points to make which, again, may send you back to the work itself.
