This documentary is a nice glimpse into the life of Swiss surrealist H.R.Giger, with the bulk of footage shot shortly before his untimely death in 2014. The film seamlessly mixes "present-day" footage with other footage from the 70s and 80s. Interesting to me is that Giger's agent is Leslie Barany, who stars in the must-see short film "The Centrifuge Brain Project" and also learning that one of Giger's personal assistants in the former front man of proto-black metal band Celtic Frost. RECOMMENDED.
