I KNEW IT WAS YOU
HBO Documentary of Actor John Cazale
You will hear profound acting lessons, be moved by, and wildly inspired
by this 40 minute tribute to this stunning actor.
I Knew It Was You: Rediscovering John Cazale is a must... The documentary by Richard Shepard examines the short but brilliant career of American actor John Cazale, who starred in just five films before his death at age 42 of lung cancer. But what five films they were: The Conversation, The Godfather, The Godfather, Part II, Dog Day Afternoon, and The Deer Hunter, which was released after Cazale's death. He was perhaps best known for his roles in the Godfather films, as Fredo Corleone, the weak, overwhelmed brother who resents being seen as the burden he is. I Knew It Was You refers to the famous line uttered by Al Pacino's Michael Corleone to his brother Fredo--a line that seals Fredo's fate and sends chills up the spine of the viewer. As I Knew It Was You shows, Cazale's amazing acting ability was to take a "less showy" and weak character like Fredo--one that most actors would shy away from playing--and embrace him and make him completely memorable. The interviews in I Knew It Was You are fascinating, including a long one with Pacino, who relates what it was like to work with Cazale in both Godfather films as well as Dog Day Afternoon. Pacino says, "That's exactly what it was like to work with him--he took his craft very seriously, came up with things like that, and he made you better." Other great interviewees include film historian Mark Harris, and Meryl Streep, who first met Cazale when they were acting in Shakespeare in the Park in New York in the '70s and fell deeply in love, until Cazale's death. No fan of American film…will want to miss this amazing appreciation of an amazing actor. --A.T. Hurley
