An Inspiring Doc - Takes time to get into but a great story!
25 January 2017 | by sergiobrianSee all my reviews

I managed to see this online via the Atlas Awards closed online film festival. The doc is very inspiring overall. It drags a bit, but some very awesome footage of Stan Lee, Kevin Smith, and celebrities. As a writer and filmmaker myself, I was really inspired after watching this film. The doc explores the various motifs and struggles that independent artists and writers must face when entering the industry. There are so many cool examples of this throughout the film. They explore the story of Mexican-Canadian Artist as well which gives the film a nice touch. The only problem I have with the film is that at first, it seems a bit disjointed. I wasn't quite sure who we are following in the story but eventually, this was evident and clear to me as you keep watching the film. It's one of those films where you have to keep watching to get the full effect of the message and understanding of the subject matter. Great take on the comic book industry in Canada and Abroad. I recommend anyone who wants to get into comics to see this film. I would also recommend filmmakers watch this doc as it gives insight into a massive industry that is filled with surprises, let downs and successes. I really enjoyed this film and would honestly recommend watching it if you like documentaries.
