Storyline

Honing his craft as an indie filmmaker in Germany in the early 90s, Uwe Boll never could have imagined the life that would lay itself out in front of him. He has experienced a storied career that has led to such highs as working with Oscar-winning actors and making films with 60 million dollar budgets, and has reached such lows as having actors publicly disparage their films with Boll and online petitions for him to stop making films reaching hundreds of thousands of signatures. None of this stopped Uwe from continuing to put out movie after movie, totaling 32 feature films before retiring and opening a successful high end restaurant. Already a cult legend, Uwe Boll will be remembered forever in the film world. Some will remember him as a modern-day Ed Wood, who made films so bad, they're good. Others will remember him as the prolific filmmaker who came from a small town in Germany and never compromised his integrity while he created his own path in Hollywood.

Fascinating observation of a controversial figure
3 December 2018 | by admin-30992See all my reviews

I had no idea who Uwe Boll was before watching and I'm now so intrigued. Uwe carries such strength in personality and enigmatic energy throughout the film, you must be delighted with your choice of subject. There are instances in life when one can appreciate the philosophy behind someone's actions and be inspired by them as a personality or artist, and yet despise the manifestation and outcome of those ideas. It's a tough dichotomy to reconcile and one that I think gives your film a deeper, contemplative meaning. He's obviously a brilliant man, full of revolutionary spirit, social insight and poetry, but something in his application and interaction with people and the world doesn't work. I wonder how many great thinkers are trapped with poor apparatus, and what would happen if Uwe had applied all this energy to a different art-form or academia. Despite all the out-takes from what are often considered laughably terrible films, I enjoyed how well your documentary balances these failures with unanimous admiration for Uwe, often from his worst critics. Congratulations to you all.
