At the very beginning of this documentary, I was puzzled by Thoth's performance. It seemed rather strange to me. Then, as the documentary reveals more about Thoth's life, the performance begins to make more and more sense. You understand exactly what caused Thoth to create his fantasy world and by extension his opera, and feel his plight as a homeless street performer. By the end of the documentary, you will view Thoth as a remarkable performer and an inspiration to both musicians and non-musicians alike. Overall, his work reminds me of a combination of JRR Tolkien and Richard Wagner (which according to his website are two of his biggest influences). Simply astounding.
