Movie Review: A Letter to Elia (2010)

This PBS American Masters documentary (dir. Kent Jones and Martin Scorsese) is an inspiring look at Elia Kazan’s life and career, and stuff he went through like getting blacklisted as a communist and naming names and all that.

Narrated by Martin Scorsese.

After this I was inspired to watch the great Kazan films, East of Eden and On the Waterfront.
