It’s safe to assume Holden Caulfield would use neither “phony” nor “crumby” to describe the upcoming Salinger documentary. It’s hard to imagine the nine-years-in-the-making film about reclusive author J.D. Salinger — which features interviews with 150 subjects including A. Scott Berg, Gore Vidal, E.L. Doctorow and Philip Seymour Hoffman — as anything but Oscar bait. Shane Salerno of such action fare as Savages and Armageddon wrote, produced, financed and directed the feature, which promises confidential revelations come September 6.
