Comic-Con IV: A Fan's Hope
Morgan Spurlock is the the greatest example of a filmmaker who thinks outside the box and has the imagination and inspiration of a true artist.
I compare him to the artist Andy Warhol because he sees what others may view but his artistic talent allows him to create something unique. Perhaps his determination to be a filmmaker after being rejected by the USC film school several times but finally making the cut at the NYU film school opened his eyes in a very special way.
One his favorite films is ,"A Face in the Crowd ",which allows me to see why he would create this documentary ,"Comic-Con Episode IV:A Fan's Hope, which has many faces in the crowd.Morgan knows what it feels like and is very sensitive to all those fans , wanna-bees ,illustrators and writers who attend this awesome event in San Diego which has grown into a major happening with A list directors and stars putting it on their must attend list.So for four days every July over 100,000 pop-culture aficionados storm the San Diego Convention Center for Comic-Con.
Morgan Spurlock pulls us into the atmosphere and we feel like a participant in this environment.What had started as a fringe comic book convention for 500 fans has grown into the pop culture event of the year that influences every form of entertainment. He explores the convention's goals and history - which is revealed through introspective interviews with Kevin Smith, Eli Roth, and Josh Whedon plus many other notables.For the first time in his career, Spurlock, doesn't provide narration and immediately draws us into the happenings in quicktime and it's impossible not to sympathize with and root for the film's immensely likeable subjects at Comic-Con 2010 who were found online and their personal narratives represented what the Comic-Con experience is all about.Eric, an aspiring illustrator, is hoping to impress publishers and land a job;Holly, costume and creature designer, hopes her creations will win the big prize;Chuck, a long-time comic book dealer, is looking for a big sale to pay off his debts;Skip, longtime amateur illustrator wants to be discovered at this year's event;James, a young fan, hopes his girlfriend will accept a dramatic proposal.
I will definitely attend Comic-Con this year.
