  • Morrissey has inspired the passions of many throughout his career, inciting anger and dislike from those who disapproved of his effeminacy, his outspoken politics, and his persistent melancholy, while inspiring delight in the legions of fans whose angst and disaffection he expressed so aptly. He became a cultural icon in Great Britain and an underground staple stateside with his musical output as frontman of The Smiths. But after his conflicts with guitarist Johnny Marr caused the band to break up, Morrissey embarked on a solo career that has brought him success and infamy ever since. Eventually gaining greater acclaim from his loyal, fervid fan base in the US than in his homeland, he relocated to LA, and continued to produce influential, literate pop music delivered with a theatrical bent. This unauthorized documentary fills in the blanks about the enigmatic, fascinating individual and artist who has captured the imaginations of so many. Incorporating interviews with many of the people who worked closely with him during his career, we hear from Stephen Street, Tony Wilson, Mark Nevin, Vini Reilly, Jonny Bridgwood and former Smiths member Craig Gannon, among others. The previously unseen footage contained herein lends a greater understanding of the motivation, inspiration, and history behind one of rock's most prominent and influential figures.
