Monster Road

The life of legendary eccentric clay animator Bruce Bickford is illuminated in this fascinating documentary. From his Cold War childhood to his work with Frank Zappa to his relationship with his engineer father, now facing Alzheimer's. Entirely self-taught, he works from a makeshift basement, still producing fantastic worlds that more often than not never see the light of day. An artist for art's sake, in the tradition of 'Crumb'.
