Phil Spector’s son gives blessing to “Agony” doc

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: A documentary examining the trials and tribulations of jailed record producer Phil Spector received the blessings of one of Spector’s sons, following a screening Thursday night in Los Angeles.

Louis Spector, 44, attended the screening and told director Vikram Jayanti he found the documentary to be touching and moving, according to Reuters.

“It was a real experience that I quite enjoyed, and I love the respect that you gave Lana Clarkson on her behalf and the respect you gave to my father,” Louis said.

Clarkson, of course, died inAdd an Image Spector’s California mansion in 2003. The music icon claimed it was a suicide, but a jury eventually found him guilty of second-degree murder last year. Spector’s currently serving a life sentence.

Jayanti’s documentary, “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Phil Spector,” spawns from a lengthy interview the producer did for the BBC prior to his first trial. The director reportedly overlays classic tunes Spector produced over trial footage.

“Agony” has played multiple festivals over the year, from Hamptons International to Vancouver.
