Quotes

Laerte Coutinho: There is a country called Love. And sometimes you see yourself inside of it - and you don't know who you're with very well. You don't even know who is accompanying you, but the country is beautiful, it's interesting, there is beautiful scenery, there are moments. Things make sense. Coincidences are not coincidences. Everything is different.

Being human
15 February 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Being an artist means for most, they have a lot of sellf doubt. And you get another case right here, where you have the artist saying it out loud. And while the artist is being gender deficient (that's why I keep writing the artist and not her or him), not acknowledging what people should call the artist. Apart from a lot of interview minutes we do get the comics in between the artist has drawn and other art.

It's supposed to shock at times I guess (especially when the artist is naked, breast, but also a penis (transgender as the information on imdb would tell you too). If you're easily offended you may want to stay away from it anyway. You can admire the art, the story itself is not really sufficient to fill the running time. It's a decent documentary overall I reckon, but there are far better ones out there
