Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon

Mike Myers (Austin Powers, Wayne’s World) makes his directorial debut with this witty, loving tribute to his friend Shep Gordon, a legendary talent manager who has built his career representing an eclectic range of artists, from rock legends Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd, Blondie, and Anne Murray to celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse. Myers reveals a man who has embraced his dualities: a hard-driving dealmaker who wants everyone to be happy and a rock-and-roll hedonist who yearns for family. But it is Gordon’s crisis of faith with fame (and his philosophical approach to his Jewish/Buddhist identity) rather than the incredible showbiz story that constitutes the film’s moving portrait.
