more emotion than expected
14 January 2005 | by cbruth-1See all my reviews

i viewed "alter egos" at a private screening with Laurence green present. the documentary, originally meant only to be a promotional tool for the animated documentary contained in entitled "Ryan," works as so much more. it is a credit to Laurence to have put together such an emotionally charged outlook on a fellow film maker, long-lost animator Ryan Larkin. Ryan went from Oscar contender to panhandler. the animated "Ryan" is shown in full at the end of "alter egos" as is Ryan larkin's reaction to it and conversation with its creator, Chris Landreth. it is one of the most insightful moments that i have seen in film. Laurence green has managed to create more than just a promotional tool--he has made a documentary every bit as creative and deep as the man and the film it is about.
