Neil Gaiman's A Short Film About John Bolton

Movie Summary

Director:
Neil Gaiman
Released:
2003
Rating:
Not Available
Neil Gaiman's A Short Film About John Bolton was written and directed by Gaiman himself and released in 2003. Gaiman's writing experiences in comics like Sandman, novels like American Gods and earlier films such as Mirrormask, honed his skills for this type of dark lyrical work. The film, which teeters between comedy and tragedy, is an intense but fictional look at the inspirations and quirks of famous fantasy artist John Bolton (John O'Mahony). John Bolton is best known for his masterfully painted renditions of curvaceous and ravenous she-vampires, as well as the mystery of letting his work speak for itself and the unique habit of wearing an ornamental knife wherever he goes. The film chronicles the efforts of his would-be interviewer, Marcus Brigstocke, to interview and film this mysterious and eccentric artist. This edgy film reveals the story behind the man, the inspirations behind his work and the darker side of beauty he witnesses and creates.
