So... I remember the day Kier-La said she finally saw a Fantastic Fest screener that she liked and described how great this doc was. And now, since she's up in the Great White North instead of down here taking credit for all her hard work, I made seeing this my own personal tribute to her tastes. I think Matt Kiernan dedicating his awesome winning performance in Fantastic Fued to her and singing Ballroom Blitz in her honor is probably a better tribute but whatever.
Speaking of last night, I'm not sure how seriously I can take this movie after seeing its director Hasko Baumann karaoke the Love Boat theme. Very Well. Apparently he did a rendition of Werewolves of London later on in the evening that blew everyone away. One guy in the audience said he sang like Leonard Cohen which is awesome. Luckily the movie's great and I didn't think about The Love Boat once while watching it.
He got a lot of great interviews (most notably Philippe Druillet and Alejandro Jodorowsky (which he said took a year and a half to get)) that painted a very good picture of Moebius the artist. He only touched on his personal life a tiny bit (when it influenced his work) and came off feeling much more like a celebration of the art than the person. That's not a bad thing in my book though, since I was fairly unfamiliar with the art and found it to be very interesting.
Good doc. I liked it a lot.
During the Q&A, someone asked Hasko what he wanted to work on next and he answered a doc about the Italian crime films of the 70s. People started cheering. Then he said hopefully that could get him back here and people cheered more. I am lining up to see that movie right now.
