Val Kilmer shared bits of his life through his own lens in the documentary ‘Val’

The very famous actor from the United States Val Edward Kilmer is a very well-known actor in Hollywood in the 1980s. He became famous after his super hit performance in the movie Top Secret that was released in 1985 followed by Top Gun which was considered as the military action picture in that era.

Kilmer is one of the most interesting of Hollywood’s many renowned names, and there’s no denying that there are countless of them. He performs each role by bringing a sense of quirkiness and complexity to each personality that has previously only been found in the most varied theatrical actors. Val Kilmer, for contrast, did not represent Jim Morrison in Oliver Stone’s The Doors, which is based on the mythic life of legendary rock band The Doors; instead, he played the irritating and brilliant leader. He exchanged guises with almost unrelenting ease as The Saint.

Kilmer has been “documenting his own life and craft through film and video” for years, and the film is billed as a creative tour de force taken from his own archives. This documentary will depict the struggles that he faced and how he won over them and took his place in the industry.

What Kilmer thinks about the Documentary

For the documentary to be made Kilmer had to spend thousands of hours going through the contents of his past videos and movies that he performed in the 1980’s movie Top Secret to make Val a success. He used to glance around at least every day for years and had the unpleasant sensation that there were a thousand reasons why the building could have sunk. Kilmer stated that his crew members were also very dedicated and supported him during the journey of the documentary as there were endless hours of editing spent by the crew members and endless emotions with each new cut. For him, it was not possible to make this documentary without the help of his very good friends Leo and david.
