A captivating portrait
Themes of violence, the attempt to evoke reaction and vulnerability intertwined.
An ensemble that works really well together.
What I didn't like
I thought the hair stylist character was a bit shallow compared to the other characters but that was minor.
My overall impression
This was an interesting piece about an artist that I re-remembered once the show began. A look into the world of contemporary conceptual art, the art world in the early LA scene, and specifically Chris Burden. In this portrait a complex person is revealed, not always sympathetic but very human and striving to find meaning, to evoke reaction, and create a connection through danger and vulnerability.
