Documentary maker Vikram Jayanti scored an enviable media “get” when record producer Phil Spector granted him an extended interview in March 2007, a month before he was scheduled to stand trial for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson. Spector never addresses the case in any detail, but he does expound on his history in the music business recording such artists as the Ronettes, the Righteous Brothers, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ike and Tina Turner. Jayanti combines this self-glorying interview footage with video from the trial and nearly two dozen of Spector’s recordings; the end result is a mesmerizing and often unsettling portrait of a man whose megalomania led to some of the most majestic pop singles of the early 60s—and to the cold-blooded murder of an innocent woman.
