Pavarotti

GENIUS IS FOREVER

Featuring never-before-seen footage, concert performances and intimate interviews, filmmaker Ron Howard examines the life and career of famed opera tenor Luciano Pavarotti.

"This is mostly a straightforward, chronological, solid if not overly insightful biography, filled with footage of performances spanning the decade and augmented by family home movies and archival stills. For opera lovers, this is a reminder of Pavarotti’s enormous talent and worldwide triumphs. For the casual fan or the uninitiated, it’s a solid primer walking us through the man’s life and times, from his relatively humble beginnings to his early breakout success to his unprecedented crossover status as a global star, instantly recognizable far outside the walls of any opera house.

Clip after clip reinforces the image of Pavarotti as a robust man who loved life, loved food, loved wine, loved women — and loved himself, sometimes at the expense of others’ feelings. But we also see how Luciano had a way of making nearly everyone around him feel special, whether you had known him for years or were meeting him for the first time." - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun

"It’s been only 12 years since the great tenor Luciano Pavarotti died of pancreatic cancer, too young at the age of 70. Since that time, the landscape of music, and of music marketing, two fields in which he was an undeniable giant, has changed so drastically as to be unrecognizable. Even if lyric opera isn’t your taste, you’d be hard-pressed to deny that the void Pavarotti left in terms of worldwide exposure of classical music has not yet begun to be shoveled in. Ron Howard’s documentary doesn’t just make you miss the singer. It makes you miss, of all things, a robust music industry." - Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
