A one of a kind documentary about an original artist
7 September 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

The well known Norwegian documentary film maker Even Benestad has here made what I would call a meta documentary about the former drug addict Terje Brofos, which is now widely known as his alter ego (Hairston Pushwagner). The film starts off in a way where we understand that Pushwagner himself takes control over the documentary, with all his strange and original ideas. With the perfect music score bade by Ugress, we see an artful documentary witch shows both the man and the art.

Pushwagner has the distinct known face of a drug addict. Lots of scars from needles and life, thin, marked facial structure the drug voice and the lack of teeth. Still he is a charming man, always wearing a black suit, often with a black cowboy hat. One original man, without any doubt. A rock'n'roll artist in all aspects. Appropriately enough the film is filmed both in black and white and color.

His art is industrial, cosmopolitan, pop culture, repetitive, giving a Kafkaesque feel. His works goes for great money. Deservedly do. His art is very interesting, and highly exciting. I find myself really wanting some of his work.

I recommend this film both to film lovers, as I would for art lovers, of course. The documentary film work must have been such a challenge with this original. Once again great work from Benestad's hands, just like when he made the documentary about his transvestite father. This film will be much appreciated for years to come, as his works will be guaranteed more and more appreciated and expensive.
