Casper talks a lot about things without a big connection to the movie: Minnelli’s life and career, the old studio system, movies after WW II, the use of colour in movies, the MGM studio, shooting in Europe, the actor Kirk Douglas etc.

This track is not very scene specific. There are informations about Lust for Life, but not enough. The best parts are about the staging of the scenes, the movie as a biopic, the visual style and the long shots. There are gaps.

The track is solid, but there are too much things unrelated to the movie. 7 out of 10.
