The film offers a unique insight into the world of Giger's creation and his private life. In addition to the interview with the artist himself, a considerable part of the documentary is formed by interviews with personalities such as Ernst Fuchs, Stanislav Grof and Debbie Harry. Though the authors do not avoid particular developmental periods of Giger's work, the main purpose was not to create the artist's biography. In this case, it is more likely considered to be an authentic perspective on the peculiar world of this Swiss surrealist artist. Written by
Dull & uninformative, avoid it & buy a book instead
This documentary was awful, it was boring, contained no information about Giger or his working methods and showed nothing of his life or inspirations. The entire film seemed to be made up of fan interviews each explaining why Giger is a genius but showing very little proof of the claims, Gigers work was shown only in short clips and the man himself appears for no more than 5 minutes of the film. Like many people my main knowledge of Gigers work is from the Alien films so I was hoping this documentary would expand and broaden my knowledge of his work and influences but sadly this wasn't the case, save your time and money and buy a book of the mans work instead.
