Format: DVD
"The Sophisticated Misfit" is an extremely interesting film highlighting the art and life of Josh Agle, or "Shag" - an extremely influential painter, illustrator and designer. This documentary traces his life from when he started in Hawaii, through college and finally to his present-day title as a well-known artist. Shag is well known for designing album covers as well as a great deal of recognizable modern art.

The film gives the viewer a look into Shag's personal life, offering interviews with family members, artistic influences, collectors and fans. It even shows Shag creating new art in his at-home studio! The special features on this film are amazing as it includes a silk-screening demonstration of one of Shag's most recognizable prints entitled "Well Hung". It also includes a tour of Paul Frank's workshop, which is great as Shag often collaborates with him.

The soundtrack to the film matches the subject matter perfectly by including the music of modern musicians such as the Tiki Tones, the Dynatones and Clouseaux. This film is great for those who are fans of Shag as well as those who want to start learning about this truly creative artist!

This film is an amazing look at the works of Shag, an extremely important contemporary artist. Not only do we get to learn more about Shag, his family, his collaborators and his fans, but we get a deeper look into his artwork as well! The film delves deeper into his artistic content matter, highlighting his opinions and the ideas that he tries to convey with each piece.

Shag's works celebrate consumerism and consumption through sharp colors, interesting characters and well-thought-out surroundings and scenarios. We see characters drinking, smoking, eating and looking good in his paintings - but this documentary allows us to understand Shag's message behind these portrayals. It allows us to understand that Shag wants the viewers to create their own stories rather than let him tell the stories for them.
This documentary allows the viewer to see Shag as a narrator as well as an artist. His interviews as well as his on-screen creation makes for an extremely special experience. Not only do we get to see the final works of art, but we get to see how they came into fruition and what Shag wanted their overall messages to be.

The subject matter as well as the music come together to make an extremely interesting film for everyone - whether they already know about or if they are just being introduced to him!

Love Josh Agle's work. Who doesn't? His story and his work is absorbing and brings a smile to anyone exposed to it. Loved his stuff from the very first viewing. He encapsulates themes of the 1960s perfectly.

I really enjoyed the look at SHAG and his art but the pace of the documentary felt too slow. If you like SHAG's art you'll probably enjoy this inside look. The details are interesting and I'd watch it again but look for it at your library first.
