| A great documentary for "movie buffs"
Any movie buff should love this flick, with its interviews with such greats as Sam Fuller, King Vidor, Scorsese, Lynch, and Bogdanovich, and its clips from a lot of great(and not so great) films. The title is taken from Orson Welles ' great acceptance speech at the AFI dinner (included in its entirity), when he called himself a "maverick".A lot of fun to view-and review.
