    It's listed as a Critic's Pick.
    ‘Framing John DeLorean’ Review: The Man Who Flew His Car Too Close to the Sun

    Mixing documentary and fictionalized re-enactment, a new film about the mythic automaker tells a quintessentially American story of ambition and greed.

    The takeaway line say "the movie....is unfailingly engrossing".

    Congrats, Tamir and team!

    Some good thoughts here. And as my directors often joke, they say I would've had an 8 hour cut if I had my way.

    Yeah, we had to make certain creative decisions, most of them consisting of omitting rather than changing certain facts as we needed to keep under two hours and stay the course of what we were trying to analyze, which was John's character, etc.

    I must say though, I believe folks will be very interested in some of the bonus features when they are released, as they add even more insight into some crazy aspects to John's story and those involved in his story. So more fun things to come in the next few months.

    Glad you enjoyed the film, I tried very hard to do the DMC community right.

    Best,
    T.

    I really appreciated Zach who wasn't just candid, but genuine in his request about wanting an honest portrayal of his father instead of a rosy one. Plus the guy talks the same way I do. Can't go wrong with the colorful metaphors.

    It's damn hard to really capture the full story in a single movie, because after all like the marque, it's divided into 3 sections; the man, the company, and the car. But I feel as though it did one helluva job staying on course. Only 2 things I would possibly question about the movie would be the story of GPD, and Proto-1. DeLorean wouldn't have gotten a full 50% cut of the GPD funds with Chapman, nor was it all setup by JZD and Chapman. Although getting into corporate history would have taken away from the story since the focus is intended instead to be about the man himself. Let alone the concern about getting into the story of Juhan family, and how they may have reacted to any representation in the film. As for Proto-1, Lotus to my understanding was not used simply as a way to siphon funding from DMC. Rather Lotus became involved when Proto-1 was realized to have had substandard crash worthiness and the engineering on the car had to be restarted from the ground-up. Hence the outsourcing of engineering (starting with an inquiry to Porsche who may have tipped-off Juhan). Perhaps this was omitted as a respect to Bill Collins though.

    I positively loved the little easter eggs in the film. Like the "Business Today" case module in JZD's briefcase, and the custom DeLorean sunglasses he wore.

    There's still quite a few things left out that either influenced his life (I think the Palm Springs story is very telling in explaining why he became the way he was), or were major milestones, but I'm happy that the film got down to the focus on JZD & DMC. That's what I really wanted to see. I feel that it's a great film that has done the marque, and the man justice by being as honest as possible without glossing over nor condemning. I have no qualms in recommending this film to anyone wanting to know more about the man, and don't feel as though I need to give a disclaimer like you do with some of the books written about him.

    This is both the movie that I wanted to see, and the movie that the rest of the public needed.

    I've been happily surprised to hear non car folks get excited about the film. So I'm glad both you and your wife enjoyed the film!

    My wife likes my car but never cared about the history and honestly she is just not into DeLoreans either....She was mesmerized.

    That was my biggest takeaway. If it can captivate my wife then this will appeal to pretty much anyone with even minimal interest in the story.

    She fuckin loved it

    Yeah, as Rich has alluded to, there is a lot of intrigue to Hillel's history with JZD. I can tell you we were very careful with making sure personal bias didn't leak into the story points. But there is no doubting Hillel uncovered some very unsavory aspects to JZD's business dealings well before the drug bust, and through this and some unreal things that occurred after the drug bust to Hillel, that his story is quite compelling in it's own right. Which will be revealed in more detail in some bonus scenes.

    As mentioned by Alec in a few interviews, there are other DeLorean projects in the works, and Tamir can confirm,
    but I think most folks want to "enjoy the moment" and focus on the movie and its stories, at least for now.

    As for Hillel, there is some compelling evidence regarding his side of the story. I spoke extensively to Hillel in 2018
    before inviting him to DCS 2018, and many of the DCS 2018 attendees (after Friday dinner) heard his evidence too.

    Stay tuned ... more to follow.

    Thanks. Glad you are enjoying my on screen presence as well as my producing skills. I wore A LOT of hats to get this film made and successfully over the finish line.

    I'm half way through it via iTunes Movie rentals (thanks to my little 14 month old) and so far it's wonderful. The pacing, story and editing is truly captivating and like Michael, I'm watching with my wife and she's also mesmerized. Can't wait to finish it later tonight when the wee one is in bed.

    Outstanding stuff Tamir and you're a very engaging on-screen storyteller.

    Cheers!

    The cat now knows more than most of the people that approach me.

    Also I know it is too soon to talk about sales but when the time comes I hope there is a "Tamir cut" of the movie available with all of the scenes that were cut...at the very least, all of the reenactments included.
