This documentary portrait of composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim — one of America’s greatest living artists of the theater — matches, in cinematic ways, the brilliance and imaginative power of his work. Directed by James Lapine, Sondheim's collaborator (book writer and director) on several classic stage musicals, the movie is structured around six songs that Sondheim worked on at different times of his life and career. Each song, woven into a web of Sondheim interviews, is presented in either archival footage or a modern interpretation: “Being Alive,” from “Company,” arrives in clips from D.A. Pennebaker’s groundbreaking 1970 documentary of the cast recording session, with Dean Jones singing his heart out; “I’m Still Here,” from “Follies,” is filmed by Todd Haynes (and shot by Ed Lachman) as a stylish meta-comment on the show itself; "Opening Doors," from "Merrily We Roll Along," is performed by young stars Darren Criss, Jeremy Jordan, and America Ferrara. The overall effect of the film is dazzling, and goes a long way toward conveying the basis for Sondheim's art: his craft, his ideas, and his aspirations. (Courtesy of HBO; 86 min.)
