The Most Disappointing Movies of All Time
The Contenders: Page 17
Instead of filming a worthy biography of a talented musician, that shows the extreme contrast between Liberace's public image as a womanizer and his secretly lived out homosexuality, "Behind the Candelabra" essentially focuses on one not even that important relationship in Liberace's life and follows it without depth. It makes his life much more ordinary and uninteresting than it actually was. The fact that he was gay alone is not what makes his story interesting, but that it was so different from what his public image was.
With Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in the leading roles and Steven Soderberg responsible for the direction, I am sure there would have been much more possible. A "real" biopic where they show his rise to fame and focus on both his private life AND his career, for example. - Martin_Canine
This movie was a huge, anti-climactic, shallow and rushed disappointment, it's sad that the Harry Potter film series ended on a whimper, not a bang. - SailorSedna
Not that bad. Strangely enough it's not Neve Campbell but Emma Roberts who steals the show in this movie.
