Val Kilmer is an enigma. He’s one of the most successful actors in Hollywood’s history. It just so happens that for 40+ years he’s been documenting his life in front of and behind the camera. From Amazon Studios, the new documentary, VAL, goes through that life. Here’s the official description:
For over 40 years Val Kilmer, one of Hollywood’s most mercurial and/or misunderstood actors has been documenting his own life and craft through film and video. He has amassed thousands of hours of footage, from 16mm home movies made with his brothers, to time spent in iconic roles for blockbuster movies like Top Gun, The Doors, Tombstone, and Batman Forever. This raw, wildly original and unflinching documentary reveals a life lived to extremes and a heart-filled, sometimes hilarious look at what it means to be an artist and a complex man.
Check out VAL from directors Leo Scott & Ting Poo in theaters July 23rd and on Prime Video August 6th, 2021.
