The Kid Stays in the Picture  JUL 30 2003  rating: 4.0 stars

The story of Hollywood mogul Robert Evans is reason enough to tune into this film, but the on-the-cheap special effects are notable as well. The primary effect -- building on Ken Burns' technique of panning and zooming across photographs to create the illusion of motion -- separates the subjects of photos from the backgrounds and then panning each at different speeds, creating a remarkably alive 3-D "scene", almost like Bullet-Time from the Matrix, only with photos.
