06.07.15Netflix Documentary about artist Ralph Steadman, perhaps best known for his work with Hunter S. Thompson. I really like Steadman's work so this was great for no other reason than to see his stuff on the screen, some of it animated to nice effect, and to see him actually at work. The rest of the stuff - Johnny Depp hangs around the house and asks him some stuff, various forms of archival and interview footage with acquaintances like Thompson, Jann Wenner from Rolling Stone, Richard E. Grant (Withnail & I), etc - is also pretty good and I feel like I got a good sense of who Steadman is as a person and an artist (which I'm guessing is the film's goal), but really... I wish there was a 90 minute extra with a static shot of Steadman working. It's great to lift the veil a bit and see his technique but also realize that the "how" of his work is a very small part of what makes it great.
