Film

 

Made over the course of fifteen years, the film explores the connection between life and art through the eyes of seminal British artist, Ralph Steadman. Insightful, humorous, and visually stunning, this is a study in honesty, friendship and the ambition that drives an artist.

Director Charles Paul meticulously amassed the footage and created the remarkable animations for the film to match the same anarchic energy, anger and free spirit of Steadman’s pictures. Through Johnny Depp’s lead in this intimate portrait, we are able to reach to the heart of what makes this artist tick, his friendships and fallings out, his love for art and his passion for civil liberties.

How did it get here?
Director Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) applies his playful imagination to animating a series of conversations with the esteemed linguist, philosopher, political commentator and activist Noam Chomsky. At the heart of these talks is Chomsky's theory of the emergence of language. In this intellectual feast, Gondry uses drawings to make complex ideas more accessible and to expand the documentary form.

Frank Baum's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, this film features a young Oliver Hardy (the American comic actor who would later become famous as one half of Laurel and Hardy), (as the Tin Woodman.)
