Automorphosis (U.S., 2008) An art-car documentary that Harrod Blank made in college spawned this film, a fascinating look at the people behind the cars. We meet Uri “Spoon Man” Geller who has covered his car with utensils and a German guy who drives around in a hamburger-shaped three-wheeler. “It’s difficult to go against the grain,” admits Blank, whose car is a Volkswagen Beetle painted bright colors, and covered outside and inside with knick-knacks. Oh yeah, it also makes a variety of chicken noises and has slogans on it (“stop apartheid,” “safe sex”). “I grew up a little bit different from the other kids,” admits Blank. His odd sensibilities come through loud and clear in this fine film. ***
