Cheryl Furjanic's feature length documentary about the life and career of Olympic Diving champion Greg Louganis is lovingly chronicled in "Back on Board: Greg Louganis." Louganis' coming out and reveal of his HIV status are thankfully not the only focus. His is a much bigger story of a humble, introverted young man who found a passion that would get him through his adolescent confusion. And how early celebrity didn't create an easy life. The result is a story that is inspiring and well told.

Kevin Taft is a screenwriter/critic living in Los Angeles with an unnatural attachment to ’Star Wars’ and the desire to be adopted by Steven Spielberg. He can be seen in the flesh on the weekly PBS movie review series "Just Seen It."
