Showtime's New Documentary Shows Both Sides Of Lawrence Taylor
Showtime on Friday will debut "LT: The Life & Times," a biographical documentary about Pro Football HOFer Lawrence Taylor, at 8:00pm ET. Interview subjects include an "A-list group" of Bill Parcells, Bill Belichick and Oliver Stone. But NEWSDAY's Neil Best writes the "stars are LT's close friend Dino Kyriacou, and especially his ex-wife, Linda Garrett, and grown children, who chronicle the ups and downs of life with Taylor in starkly honest terms" (NEWSDAY, 9/20).
The ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER's Michael Lev writes the documentary "paints a warts-and-all picture" of Taylor, and it is "overflowing with fascinating material." USATODAY.com's Chris Strauss writes, "Throughout the entire film, Taylor is refreshingly authentic and open." The N.Y. DAILY NEWS' Nathaniel Vinton: "No closet door seems to go unopened in the film."
