Watching the great trailer of 'Candalabra' the expectations were high: It appeared to be a movie that is carefully balanced between funny self-deprication and a very in-depth look into the psyche of superstar Liberace. Of course this film would only be succesful with two heterosexual superstars playing gay man to add to the hype and making sure the heterosexual moviegoer will enjoy Candelabra as well.

After watching the film on HBO I was a bit disappointed though: Although Douglas and especially Damon deliver very delightful performances, the script seems to be merely constructed from anecdotes, falling flat and merely showing us a sensational peak in the depraved live of a gay superstar and feels like we're reading an article in a tabloid magazine (a chronologically well constructed one though) rather than the quality Milos Forman-like biopic it could have been...
