This is a very good examination of one of my favorite writers. I have ben a fan of Greene since I read The Quite American. I really feel this documentary gives an insightful yet balanced view of Greene from many perspectives. I learned many things about Greene I was not aware of until I watched this documentary. I also like the fact that it did not drag on, and kept my interest for the fill sixty minutes. Well done.

I found this to be a gripping documentary about a courageous and important writer who wrote for 70 years of the past century yet is as relevant today as then.  Derek Jacobi  was an ideal narrator and actor Bill Nighy (Love Actually, Pirate Radio) reading  excerpts from Greene's books perfectly captures the subtle nuances of Graham Greene. This film captures Greene's life vividly in 70 minutes!
