The Man from Mo'Wax (2016)
User ReviewsReview this title
More than that though, whilst I find the subject and the music of this documentary thoroughly engaging from a nostalgic perspective the narrative portrayed here is enthralling, the character arcs both fascinating and captivating.
The Man from Mo'Wax feels well-paced, and crucially with so many interesting dynamics to explore and so much source material to call on it didn't feel like the filmmakers had tried to cram too much information into the film, fortunately, they also avoided the trap of leaving too much out. The film gives a great insight into the creative process and what can be achieved when people with different strengths of character come together in pursuit of a common vision; and in stark contrast what happens when those common visions diverge, people stop communicating and self-interest and ego prevail.
I enjoyed The Man from Mo'Wax from start to finish, from young enthusiastic can-do (f*$k you) attitude to an older and wiser reflection on how things came to be.
No judgement just an honest and open retelling of what went down.
I thoroughly recommend this film 10/10.
