Enjoyable and illuminating documentary

Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus were two brash and gutsy guys who got their start making movies in Israel prior to taking America by storm with the production company Cannon Films in the 1980's. After enjoying a good deal of success throughout the early to mid-1980's, the duo crashed and burned by the end of that era because of a few bad business deals and putting an emphasis on quantity over quality as far as making movies was concerned.

Director Hilla Medalia paints a fairly rosy, but still refreshingly honest portrait of the irrepressible pair, with Globus the shrewd moneyman and Golan the audacious idea guy. The opening section on all the pictures these two made in Israel is especially interesting and informative. It's also a hoot to see how modest the Cannon production offices were in the early 1980's and the footage of the duo plying their deal making craft at the Cannes Film Festival is absolute gold.

Jean-Claude Van Damme shares a priceless story about his wild audition for Golan while director Joel Silberg has some choice stuff to say about the making of the huge hit "Breakin'." Lawyer and film executive Tom Pollock shares some important details about the duo's downfall. Alas, Eli Roth comes across like some annoyingly gushy fanboy dweeb. While Globus and Golan are reluctant to discuss at length their failures in the film industry, they both deserve credit for being brutally honest about how both could have been much better husbands and fathers. A really solid doc.

Good doco but needed subtitles

It´s an interesting documentary about the famous movies Cannon Group made in the 80s. The problem is that they switch from english to hebrew to french without adding subtitles and you lose about 40% of the dialog in the whole documentary if you don´t speak one or any of these languages . Many times it changed languages even in the same interview so that is a big No No for this Go Go. But at least half of the documentary can be understood.
