102 minutes — To Be Announced, DCP, John Bolton, Canada, 2016
Ottawa Premiere on Friday June 2nd!
A "musical docudrama" by John Bolton, inspired by the utterly amazing and completely ridiculous album by Mark Haney, inspired by the daredevil stunt to end all daredevil stunts by Ken Carter.
5 Stars! “Part long-form music video, part archival documentary, it’s experimental and conventional at the same time: a concept movie about a concept album. It’s delightful.” (Now)
“The hippest Canadian doc in years … An operatic ode to creative risk-taking that throws caution to the wind.” (Hot Docs)
“A glorious collision of documentary cinema, automotive carnage, and song and dance numbers … Combines elements of Greek tragedy, Kubrickian lushness, and the archetypal Hero’s Journey to reveal the true cost of following one’s muse … Imbued with the very things it examines - ambition, glory, and finally, the desire for greatness” (DOXA)
