Neil Young: Hollywood Reporter Review of new film In Like Flynn!

Neil Young sends us to his Review of In Like Flynn, the new film based loosely on Errol’s book Beam Ends, produced by Luke Flynn.  Thanks, Neil!


“Thomas Cocquerel takes the title role in cult Australian director Russell Mulcahy’s early-years biopic of famed swashbuckler Errol Flynn.

Reveling in the exploits of a legendary Lothario who is a most unlikely subject for a celebratory biopic during the current #MeToo era, comeback-kid Russell Mulcahy’s In Like Flynn triumphs as a disgracefully entertaining romp that packs an unexpected emotional wallop.

Chronicling the adventurous late youth of golden-age Hollywood swashbuckler Errol Flynn, the handsomely mounted production is inevitably brimming with boozing, brawling and bedding.
