Storyline

What if you could morph your car into a mobile work of art, and drive it down the road for all to see?  What would it look like?  What would the world think of you?  How would you be changed?

AUTOMORPHOSIS looks into the minds and hearts of a inspiring collection of eccentrics, visionaries, and just plain folks who have transformed their autos into artworks.  On a humorous and touching journey, we discover what drives the creative process for these unconventional characters.  And in the end, we find that an art car has the power to change us -- to alter our view of our increasingly homogeneous world.

Fun documentary
28 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

This film just played at the Ann Arbor Film festival, and I came in to a showing having absolutely no idea what the film was about. Actually, I didn't even know it's title until I walked by the theater, saw it was playing, and just decided to check it out because I had nothing else to do. Boy am I glad I did. The director, Harrod Blank, spent 13 filming all of these "art cars" just to create this 77-minute documentary about them. And a fine documentary it is. Along with seeing all of these great-looking cars (including a phone car, a hamburger car, a stained-glass car, and Blank's own camera car), you get to know the people who made them. Some of them are collectors who just wished to show off what they had. Others used the cars as a means of social connection, just a way to gain attention. Some wanted to make a statement, such as the "litterbug," a Beetle with garbage glued all over it.

This is a fun documentary that also acts as a celebration of the imagination and inspired art. A great movie.
