I Know That Voice (2013)

Director: Lawrence Shapiro. 90 min. Documentary.

Documentary aiming at signifying the importance of voice acting as an art. No doubt that the people interviewed (as they demonstrate) are incredibly gifted artists, but the film bogs down to a compilation of innumerable interviews with artists among whom, as expected, I only knew the screen actors (Mark Hamill, Hank Azaria, Ed Asner) - in contrast to a film like Side by Side, which delves into the painstaking technicalities of its subject, and as a result shows why the subject is important. The voice actors here complain why they aren't taken seriously; this documentary is unable to resolve that complaint.
