WA musician and comedian Tim Minchin's rise from obscurity to international celebrity
11 November 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Pieced together from footage taken over a period of three years, Rock N Roll Nerd follows WA musician and comedian Tim Minchin. Let down technically by low-quality footage this is nonetheless an engaging portrait of Minchin's rise from obscurity to international celebrity. His funny, personal story is told through behind-the-scenes footage, home films and interviews. It's a coming of age story for Minchin both personally and professionally as it documents the hard work, calculation and transformation of his stage persona that puts him on the road to success. After being awarded the inaugural Director's Choice award at the Melbourne Comedy festival Minchin is invited to take part in the Edinburgh Fringe and we follow the difficulties and eventual triumphs of the journey. Minchin is extremely candid. He documents his whole life and his thoughts in his complexly structured comic songs and brings the same honesty to the camera. Not one to shy away from controversy Minchin doesn't mind being offensive if he really cares about the (touchy) subject he's addressing. Minchin claims to have an insatiable craving to be affirmed by more people. I think this film will build his live audiences and help to achieve just that.
