This epilogue presents some brief, final thoughts. It states that like all other genres, bio-pics will continue to intrigue and fascinate; some will be great successes, and others will fail. But ultimately, bio-pics will succeed if filmmakers find imaginative ways to present the life in question. They will have to manipulate the vast quantities of material available to them, to create a compelling well-constructed narrative. As with documentary films, there will be accusations of bias, what has been included and what has been left out. The interests of the filmmakers will inevitably be reflected in the work. The “truth” will always be distorted.
