The story of the life of artist Ray Johnson is cloaked in mystery not only at the moment of his death, but also throughout a career that was difficult to know and to understand. As one of the seminal figures in the Pop Art era, Johnson is known as the founding father of mail art and as a collagist extraordinaire. But, overshadowed by those like Warhol who manipulated that world in a very dissimilar manner, he was also a reclusive and sometimes enigmatic figure who has been called New York's most famous unknown artist, but who challenged the commercial and critical establishment. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Good subject bad film
27 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a doc about a fascinating character and there is no way a story about him wouldn't be interesting and worth a watch so definitely watch this movie with many caveats The soundtrack is from hell- I believed it was created to torture prisoners at Guantanamo Bau There are. No revelations just a really strange thing the director did- he kind of made his suicide like a work of his art very very controlling and interpretative and not documentary but ego driven and self driven Go see it for sure but not what it could have been in the right hands
