Behind the Candelabra Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: HBO delves into the private life of flamboyant entertainer Liberace (Michael Douglas) through a well-produced but ultimately lifeless biopic. No expense was spared in this big-budget adaptation of the memoir from Liberace’s one-time lover, Scott Thorson. Steven Soderbergh directs the film, guiding Michael Douglas and Matt Damon through awkward kissing scenes between the two stars and their two characters’ turbulent romance.

  • Conclusion: 'Behind the Candelabra' offers an intimate peek into superstar pianist Liberace's personal life and his turbulent affair with a younger man. Through their story, director Steven Soderbergh shines a particularly glittering light on a fascinating real-life figure, while simultaneously examining interesting concepts dealing with love, jealousy, excess, and fame.

  • Excerpt: Michael Douglas schittert in de biopic ‘Behind the Candelabra’ (naar de goudkleurige kandelaar die tijdens optredens op zijn vleugel stond) als Liberace, een bekend showpianist uit de jaren 70 met een geheime voorliefde voor mannen, het liefst van het jongere soort. Zo ontmoet hij de onschuldige Scott Thorson (Matt Damon), een dan zeventienjarige wees onder de hoede van een boerenechtpaar.
