Notes sur The Chief


Citation sur The Chief [en anglais]

« [The Chief], a portrait of former Canadian Prime Minister John Diefenbaker [...] like so many of the excellent documentaries of the period, takes full advantage of the technological innovations of recently devised more portable equipment to catch images of heightened immediacy, such as in this case, fishing with Diefenbaker where his apparently more natural persona seems to emerge. »
