Who Is Henry Jaglom? was fascinating. Here we have maverick director Henry Jaglom. He seems to have a gaggle of actors he uses in a lot of his films and they were interviews about working with him. A lot of them find it hard at the time but admit that he gets a good product out of them. Candice Bergen had the best line in the whole movie when she said, "If I'd had Henry as a husband or a father, I could have taken Poland." Jaglom detractors got their say, too. I specifically want to know how he edits, how he decides what stays and what goes. The one thing this film didn't have was more stuff on his process. Like Matt and Groovymoovy, it made me want to know more about him.

I agree with Matt. It does and doesn't answer the question. I love the interviews with the actors who have worked with him. They gave away as much about themselves as they did Jaglom. It definitely makes me want to know even more about him. Maybe there'll be a bio some day. I wonder if he has reels of footage of himself. I bet he does. His new film Queen of the Lot looks interesting. I'm looking forward to it.

Who Is Henry Jaglom?

Does this film answer the question "Who is Henry Jaglom?" Yes and no. There's an interview format where actors, fans and non-fans talk about Jaglom, his directing style, his moods, his talent. Like his films, people seem to have very strong opinions one way or the other. They either love him or hate him - there's no middle ground.  Even he's trying to figure that one out. I find it interesting that he enjoys the negative responses as well as the positive ones. Most people want to shoot themselves after a bad review but Jaglom embraces them and even reprints them or uses them in future films. I think that's really healthy. 

Jaglom is an auteur with a unique style that results in unique films. There are clips of him interspersed throughout this film where you get to see him talk about hi...
