MAKING MONTGOMERY CLIFT

Robert Anderson Clift & Hillary Demmon; 2018; USA; 87 min.; Northwest Premiere

This deeply personal and ambitious look into the legacy of classic film star and queer icon Montgomery Clift was painstakingly created by his nephew Robert, who also narrates. A treasure trove of hidden memorabilia and unearthed film and audio reels collected by Monty’s brother Brooks, along with interviews with his biographer, friends, and lovers, breathes much insight into this often misunderstood and fiercely independent man, who was insatiably committed to his craft. This is a must-see for film aficionados but also an engrossing portrait of obsessed family members trying to discover elusive truths and to set the record straight as to what has been sensationalized in the tabloids as “the slowest suicide in show business.”
