Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon

Insider showbiz documentary on talent manager Shep Gordon, the directorial debut from Mike Myers. After years of wild success repping everyone from Alice Cooper to Michael Douglas and enjoying insane debauchery, Gordon (pictured more than once in a t-shirt proclaiming "No Head, No Backstage Pass") turned to charity and his own spiritual quest. Features a bevy of Hollywood star interviews.

"Myers brings a comic touch to documenting the astounding career of consummate Hollywood insider Shep Gordon. Making playful use of archival footage, new interviews, and his own close relationship with the legendary talent manager, Myers reveals a man who has embraced his dualities: a hard-driving dealmaker who wants everyone to be happy and a rock n’ roll hedonist who yearns for a family... These contradictions make him a fascinating documentary subject." (Tribeca Film Festival)

It's an affectionate, sometimes downright slobbery career salute with a soft, unexamined center... of limited interest outside the celebrity bubble it depicts.

More sugar-rush than Sugarman, but Gordon's extraordinary life just outside the spotlight is a whirlwind of charm and chutzpah.

Bears an atypically vervy style for a first-time filmmaker, who touches on his own rough patch and Gordon's saintly intervention.

You'll be looking him up as soon as it ends. The feeling this is all some huge elaborate hoax only adds spice!

Very much a celebration. But Gordon comes across as a refreshingly candid man who feels no compulsion to varnish the truth.

It might veer towards hagiography at times, but its subject is so entertaining you don't even care.
