Fun, worth a watch
2 June 2008 | by j2117See all my reviews

This was a fun movie -- lots of cool interviews with comic book artists. They talk about their creativity and how they get their ideas. It's well-made and interesting -- kept my attention throughout and I'm not the biggest comic book fan. Worth a watch! What I found most interesting was the discussions with the different creators -- where do ideas come from? There was a narrator who talked a little bit about current research and theory on creativity. But it wasn't a "stuffy" documentary -- people seemed to be having a good time and the director, Chris Brandt, knows what he's doing. It's clearly made on a very low budget, but it doesn't really matter; the key thing is what the different people in the comics world have to say, and they share their insights very well. I would recommend this movie to other people, even if they're not the biggest comic book fans in the world -- if they're interested in art, or creativity, they'll find something here to enjoy. High recommended!
