Val Should Have Left us in the Dark
Reviewed in the United States on August 5, 2021
Val should have left his fans happily admiring his work as Doc Holliday, Jim Morrison, and Iceman. Val, the documentary, was not only a professional fail it cringingly exposed Kilmer as a vain, self-orbiting waning moon. He reports that he began filming himself early in his career, those home movies should have been archived for his loved ones not put on the market.
Looks like he needed the money, no shame in that. Val, the film, will go away and we will remember his flawless Doc Holliday, his capture of Morrison's death spiral, and Iceman's testosterone fueled competitiveness. Its a good thing that Kilmer could act and that he could.
