Back On Board: Greg Louganis
A scene from 'Back on Board: Greg Louganis'
Cheryl Furjanic's feature length documentary about the life and career of Olympic Diving champion Greg Louganis is lovingly chronicled in "Back on Board: Greg Louganis." Louganis' coming out and reveal of his HIV status are thankfully not the only focus. His is a much bigger story of a humble, introverted young man who found a passion that would get him through his adolescent confusion. And how early celebrity didn't create an easy life. The result is a story that is inspiring and well told.
Kevin Taft is a screenwriter/critic living in Los Angeles with an unnatural attachment to 'Star Wars' and the desire to be adopted by Steven Spielberg.
