Storyline

At the end of the 1970s, Gary Numan found himself to be one of the world's biggest-selling recording artists, "Are 'Friends' Electric?" and "Cars" were huge hits, no one had heard, or seen, anyone like Gary Numan. The Asperger's syndrome that helped forge Numan's tunnel-like ambition, informing his music and image, also brought problems. At a time when the public knew little about the condition, the press labeled him a freak, one paper suggested his parents should have been doctored for giving birth to him. Depression, anxiety, near bankruptcy and a long period in the wilderness followed. Then Numan fell in love with his biggest fan, Gemma, who helped him rediscover his passion for music.

Pretty good stuff, even if you're not much of a fan
26 July 2017 | by sourpussssSee all my reviews

Numan turns out to be a lot more interesting than I recalled, and his music certainly has held up in ways I wouldn't have imagined. The documentary does a great job of letting you into the world of an introverted hermit, who somehow married one of his fans and that turned out to be a really good thing. It's overlong by about 10 minutes, but the part about his current work provide a pretty impressive display of artistic firepower for someone 30 years from his celebrated work, and there are some surprises about the early stuff too. This is a really solid music doc, something you should enjoy even if you're not a fan of Gary Numan's oeuvre.
