Here's the teaser trailer for Alex Gibney's Sinatra: All or Nothing at All from HBO:
Sinatra: All or Nothing at All, directed by Alex Gibney (Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown, We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks), is an up-close and personal examination of the life, music and career of the legendary entertainer. Told in his own words from hours of archived interviews, and commentary from those closest to him, the film weaves the music and images from Sinatra’s life together with rarely seen footage of his famous 1971 “Retirement Concert” in Los Angeles. The film’s narrative is shaped by Sinatra’s song choices for that concert, which Gibney interprets as the singer’s personal guide through his own life. The two-part documentary premieres exclusively on HBO on April 5th and 6th at 8pm Eastern time.
