An engaging and informative experience concerning a truly remarkable mind.
16 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the extreme pleasure of attending an early screening of Grant Morrison: Talking With Gods as apart of NYC Comic Con. As someone just recently exploring the depths of Morrison's works there was much to be digested from this thoroughly entertaining, finely crafted documentary.

Introducing an array of comic writers, artists, and other eccentric characters from Morrison's life, the film establishes, early on, that there is a strong admiration and respect for the man and his contributions to the comic book world. I especially enjoyed a hilarious anecdotal story from writer Warren Ellis. (Who has his own upcoming documentary "Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts" produced by the same filmmakers)

From his early years as a bored and isolated youth, to his anarchic revelations in adulthood, to the creative breakthroughs and artistic successes he has since attained, director Patrick Meany adeptly captures the various developmental stages in Morrison's life. The pace flows beautifully, the editing is sharp, and the occasional tripped-out sequences are all executed quite nicely by D.P. Jordan Rennert.

Of course, the best comes from the psychonaut himself. The various interviews with Morrison are nothing short of captivating, as he recants personal stories concerning his first foray into magic, alien abduction, and how tragedy and circumstance have affected himself and his works. An infinitely imaginative creator and a delightfully unhinged explorer of human consciousness, Morrison also possesses a refreshing sense of humor and humbleness that keeps him from treading into any territory of pretentiousness.

I had a great time with this film and I implore anyone interested in Grant Morrison or his works to check it out. This was obviously a labor of love for those involved in its production and I'm happy to see such a rousing and well made documentary crafted for one hell of an intriguing cultural figure.
