Raviv’s Revelation Reviews 2017: Becoming Bond

James Bond is one of the most iconic characters in the world of literature and pop culture. Originally being a series of books written by Ian Fleming, it has turned into a series of films where many actors play the role of Bond. One of those actors is an Australian model called George Lazenby. This film is a documentary-drama on the life of Lazenby before, during and after playing James Bond.

Let me tell you- this film is amazing! I love the way the documentary mixes Lazenby’s interview with the drama re-enactments. One of the best things about this film is how personal it is. In some moments, Lazenby replaces his vocal audio with the audio of the characters which creates a more authentic feel. The film also creates genuine moments where we feel the emotions from the characters. For example, when something happens to the Lazenby character, the “real-life” Lazenby reflects on it.

Everything is beautifully made and authentic. Throughout the whole film, I couldn’t think of anything I disliked. Everything seemed so legitimate, which made it seem so much more believable. In my opinion, many documentaries lack this quality. By showing the ups and downs of Lazenby’s life, it allows the viewer to learn from him and reflect on their life.

Overall, this film is perfect! A must-watch documentary that has elements of re-enactment from actors and news archives. 10 out of 10 for me!

RATING: 10/10
