The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story (2009)
Director: Gregory V. Sherman, Jeff Sherman
a documentary about the sherman brother's rise as the guys behind every disney song you knew as a kid, and there personal conflicts with one another
this was interesting, but i felt it was a little white washed. it was brought to us by disney so i shouldn't be too surprised. the main topic of their brotherly relationship, the dysfunction, and arguments, that eventually led to them not speaking to one another for 40 years was never directly addressed. it was discussed at length how they didn't get along, but it was presented like they just drifted apart. i'm not sure i buy that because the animosity was pretty intense. not only did they not speak, but their families were pretty much instructed not to see each other either.
it was interesting to see how they worked, and how different their style and approach to work was. i also enjoyed hearing the behind the scenes stories about disney in it's heyday when walt was still alive. all the shenanigans and conflicts. but like i said, i felt there were some important things left out.
