Amusing, surprising bio doc
17 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having begged a friend who had to do coverage of this doc for a "big" festival to let me watch it with her (I am a big Joe Meek fan), I have to say, I was wonderfully surprised.

Joe Meek is slowly becoming a household word after nearly 40 years since his death and probably for all the wrong reasons. This film gleefully and briskly sets the record straight. What works so well is the collection of entertaining interviews by a variety of genuine characters and the very personal perspectives they impart. Highly informative, poignant and entertaining.

What it boils down to is that Joe was a human being who did extraordinary things -- he was not a homicidal superman as another doc from a distant era would like you to believe. Not a carnival freak, but a clever intuitive human who knew how to get a lot out of other equally intuitive individuals. That's what an artist does and the doc hits on this dead on. Very inspiring and never disappointing. Especially from this fan's perspective.
