Storyline

The film offers a unique insight into the world of Giger's creation and his private life. In addition to the interview with the artist himself, a considerable part of the documentary is formed by interviews with personalities such as Ernst Fuchs, Stanislav Grof and Debbie Harry. Though the authors do not avoid particular developmental periods of Giger's work, the main purpose was not to create the artist's biography. In this case, it is more likely considered to be an authentic perspective on the peculiar world of this Swiss surrealist artist. Written by Anonymous

Chaos from one end to another.
13 April 2011 | by unknown14725See all my reviews

First of all the technical qualities of this production are laughable at best. It's so tragic I cannot believe this made it onto a DVD at all. The videography is extremely shaky, with really poor angles and compositions. The image quality on the segments they've actually shot themselves were most likely done with a 200 USD consumer camera. The audio is also VERY poor, and some parts actually have inaudible dialogue. The editing is pure mayhem and is very unstructured. There is digital zooming and panning and whatnot. The only thing missing are the default transitions like wipe, mosaic and so on to make this home video complete.

The contents are composed of a couple of random segments with HR Giger himself talking about how he burned his dinner in the oven, and then a zillion headshots of random know-it-all-people praising HR Giger's work up and down. There's no information about HR Giger's history or background, no information about where he gets his inspiration from, or how he produces his work. There's really nothing in this "documentary" about HR Giger himself. There's just a bunch of people talking about their own feelings for his work. Oh and let's not forget the fantastic segment with the astrology dude spilling his guts about HR Gigers charts. LOL.

No, this is a waste of time. For me. And for you.
