'Paul Williams Still Alive'
The veteran Oscar-winning songwriter ("Evergreen," "We've Only Just Begun") who also had some success as an actor ("Smokey and the Bandit," "Phantom of the Paradise") is profiled by filmmaker Stephen Kessler, who sought him out after his belief that Williams had died was proved wrong.
The documentary is very much a recounting of the trust that builds between the two men, though it's on the verge of falling apart at many moments because of Williams' skepticism, especially in reflecting on personal demons he had to conquer. *** (Not rated: AS, P)
