SINATRA: All or Nothing at All is an up-close and personal examination of the life, music and career of the legendary entertainer. Told in his own words from hours of archived interviews, along with commentary from those closest to him, the documentary weaves the music and images from Sinatra's life together with rarely seen footage of Sinatra's famous 1971 "Retirement Concert" in Los Angeles. The film's narrative is shaped by Sinatra's song choices for that concert, which Gibney interprets as the singer's personal guide through his own life.Written by
A celebration of a magnetic persona and a wonderful talent
A thorough and fascinating insight into Frank Sinatra's career trajectory but also the affect he had on others. The boy from Hoboken, New Jersey was not only the most popular musical entertainer of the 20th Century but by his own resourcefulness, drive and determination he was a man of immense influence on the political world. This documentary also gives a fair balance. The man had flaws and the film does not shy away from detailing the missteps, failings, and personal flaws.
