Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock delves into the mind of rock's greatest living photographer who captured the likes of David Bowie, Queen, Blondie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop and Lady Gaga in their most iconic poses.
Fell a bit short, but worth the watch if you're an admirer of his work. The psychedelia was annoying and out of place - Rock, to me, was a man of the 70s, not the 60s, so it clashed a bit, zeitgeist-wise.The hospital scenes were so cheesy they reminded me of the prank photos we used to take for our university's "alternative" newspaper back in the 70s. The audience isn't given nearly enough time to appreciate the actual photographs, many of which are legendary and brilliant. Overall the film seems *almost* (but not quite) intent on actively detracting from that which it purports to celebrate - i.e., the work. Pity.
This sucked...period. Poorly produced. I understand it was meant to be "different" than the usual documentaries, But with such an amazing unprecedented Inventory, I felt like I had a better collection from a teenager, same pics, and knew the same stories from the 70's. Just soooooo disappointed to learn nothing new. This is NOT for a serious fan, but great on general info Of the times of the past glory days.
