A MUST WATCH streaming on Netflix!
If nothing will cure you
of wanting to make a movie, due to sheer insanity, exponential egos,
mercurial maniacs, money grubbing back stabbers –– and the list goes on
–– this excellent documentary about the making of one of the worst films
to come out of Hollywood will. LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF
RICHARD STANLEY'S ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU is something to see. I said it
was an excellent documentary, but I said that not so much because the
doc itself (technically, etc.) was brilliant, but the story it tells is
outstanding and horrifying. It's a train wreck in slow motion that you
can't take your eyes off of. If you love film, or have made a few
small ones, as I have, you'll love this one. Although you might run
away screaming into the mountains in the end –– as the original director
of...never mind. Give it a watch.
