Film "SUPERMENSCH: The Legend of Shep Gordon" 2014-08-24 19:15:00

SUPERMENSCH: The Legend of Shep Gordon

Director: Mike Meyers   USA, 2014, 86 minutes; PG

Can revered entertainment manager Shep Gordon, profiled in this so-crazy-you-wouldn’t-believe-it documentary, really have entered the business as Jimi Hendrix’s drug dealer? Stranger things have happened. As Gordon now remembers it, this was after being punched in the face by Janis Joplin. With winning candor, Gordon brushes off his best stories, like the one about putting a chicken onstage for glammy client Alice Cooper, then calling the cops on his own show, for publicity’s sake. It worked. Viciously funny and a touch sentimental, the doc bears a vervy style for first-time filmmaker, Wayne’s World star Mike Myers, who touches on his own rough patch and Gordon’s saintly intervention. It’s a portrait that’s equal parts shtick and soul. –Time Out New York  

Capitalist, protector, hedonist, pioneer, showman, shaman... Shep Gordon is the consummate Hollywood insider. His unlikely story will be told by those who know him best, including Alice Cooper, Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone, Anne Murray, Willie Nelson, Emeril Lagasse and more.    “How can you not love this guy, this story?”Philadelphia Inquirer
