Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods
See the True Story of a Fictional Life
Philosopher, pop-icon, shaman and story teller - as one of the most influential comic book writers in the market today, Grant Morrison is all of these things. His explosive and often controversial 30 year career has made him a household name for comic fans, and he shows no signs of slowing down. Morrison's career is now taking a new turn, as he explores media beyond comic books. With film and television projects on the horizon, more and more people are asking "Who is Grant Morrison?" Grant Morrison: Talking with Gods is a feature length documentary that takes an in depth look at the life, career and mind of the man behind such pivotal titles as Batman RIP, The Invisibles, All Star Superman, The New X-Men, and many more. Featuring candid interviews with Morrison and his most important collaborators, Talking with Gods reveals an intelligent and thought provoking side of comic books that is often overlooked in Hollywood adaptations.
3 stars - more for the content than the filmmaking.
Grant Morrison je ćelavac škotskog naglaska, mačkoljubac, glazbenik, mag, šaman i, naravno, strip autor. Zvuči kao da je totalni DUŠBEG, a takav dojam se odmah i dobije. Nakon pola sata se navikneš i postane ti draži odnosno malo manji DUŠBEG. Spomene se da je imao i BEEF s Alan Mooreom.
Dosta zanimljiv dokumentarac sastavljen kako od intervjua s glavnim frajerom tako i ostalim trenutno popularnim piscima te crtačima koji su ili čitali njegova sranja ili radili na njima. Neki bliski poznanici također daju svoj dojam o njemu i tako to. Film se više bavi nekim njegovim stanjem duha koje se reflektiralo na stripove nego ijednom od tih tema zasebno. Uglavnom dosta kul.
Grant Morrison is a nut job but it's fascinating to hear him talk about what is in his head and where everything for him comes from.
I'm reviewing the content here more than the film-making. Grant Morrison is my favorite author, and a film based around interviewing him, his friends, and his collaborators is a sure way to get me interested. The film-making here is not necessarily of the highest quality, but it's not so sub-professional that there's any real damage done. I can't imagine that this would be interesting to anyone who isn't already interested in Morrison, but I really had a nice time watching it.
