I had no idea who that was. Since I make it a habit not reading about the movies I'm about to watch, the less I know the happier I am (mostly, depending on how the movies turn out to be). So apart from the fact, that this was a documentary, I had no idea what I was letting myself into. And I got to know an artist, I had never heard about. Contrary to the filmmaker that is. And the enthusiasm springs over to the artist/painter himself.
The guy is funny and although we get to see him towards the end of his journey, he does remember his good times and lets the viewer participate on what he went through. There will be a few others who will meet the artist (fans) and the interaction overall is really priceless. Even though not easy at all times (which artist is), it's funny and tragic at the same time.
