RE: I see it starts on Wednesday on Netflix - I'll probably watch it

I'll probably watch Maestro as well, but it's hard to have a "willing suspension of disbelief" when the main character is someone I have seen and listened to since the Young People's Concert days. His voice and manner are very familiar. So Cooper doing an impression of Bernstein conducting the end of Mahler 2 in Ely Cathedral just takes my absorption right out of the movie while remembering the video of Bernstein **actually** conducting Mahler 2 at that location.

Movies about classical musicians usually try to jazz up what actually looks tedious (composing) or simulate by actors fake-playing instruments.

But having said that, a short film in which the tall Adam Driver is Rachmaninoff, "the seven-foot scowl," would be quite entertaining.
