A probing portrait of Chris Burden, an artist who took creative expression to the limits and risked his life in the name of art.
User Reviews: Putting Burden’s artwork and personal performances aside, I want to say that this was in fact a very well put together documentary! It had relatively smooth transitioning and for most of my viewing I felt very intrigued and perplexed on what could be shown next! Well done to the editor!
When speaking in terms of the content, I would say that you as an audience really get to know Burden and his tenacity as well as his personal inspirations. These become very apparent as something that is very extreme in terms of personal safety and the safety of the viewers but also something that envelopes the viewer by creating the sense of concern, anxiety, and perhaps making you feel a tad bit uncomfortable. At the end of the day Burden is a proven and acclaimed artist and this doc represented much of his path along the way from childhood to his very end.
