Storyline

SHOT! The Mick Rock Documentary is an odyssey into the colorful and crazy recesses of rock 'n' roll's history. A reckless joyride that delves deep into the mind of rock's greatest living photographer: Mick Rock. Told through the distorted lens of rock 'n' roll mythology, icon-maker, psychedelic explorer, shambolic poet and custodian of dreams, Mick Rock navigates his story from the glam rock shimmer of London to the snarl of NYC punk, and deep into the new millennium. Awaiting heart surgery after after a series of heart attacks, Mick turns inward to face himself - his past, the present and the future that will be born from the ashes of his resurrection. He stretched his nervous system to the limit to bring us the iconic images of the likes of David Bowie, Syd Barrett, Blondie, Queen, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. He shot them all and imprinted them on our collective psyche forever. "I'm still in awe of the power of the camera and its magical reflections. In many ways I love it more than ever...

SHOT! tells the story of Mick Rock, a photographer who shot almost every musician of note from Syd Barrett to Snoop Dogg. 'The Man Who Shot the Seventies', Rock suffered from a near-fatal heart attack in the 1990s, recovered and remains active today. Beautifully made, SHOT! does indulge in an over-dramatisation of the heart attack, a reenactment of which anchors the whole film. Additionally, while Bowie, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop get almost an hour of screen time, the punk scene gets under ten minutes, and Rock's work with dozens of talented musicians in the 2000s, from Josh Homme to Brandon Flowers, gets treated as a mere epilogue. Other than than, however, SHOT! is an excellent documentary. The choice to use Rock's work rather than an array of talking heads works like a spell, as the film is built around only one interview with Rock himself. The music of Rock's many iconic subjects is used effectively, and sometimes cheekily, there is a flow to the story. Like any good biopic, it also manages to be a portrait of the times in which Rock worked and lived, and which he so colourfully documented with his camera.
