The Chuck Show
Documentary exploring the contradictions and passions of painter Chuck Connelly. Riding the same 1980s wave as Julian Schnabel and Jean-Michel Basquiat, Connelly seemed destined for art-world stardom. But unable to straightjacket his strong opinions and unorthodox behaviour, Connelly sabotaged his career and squandered his talent. Through interviews, intimate family videos and lively representations of Connelly's work, director Jeff Stimmel vividly captures the paradox of Connelly's repellent yet compelling personality.
