Reviews about Pop Meets the Void

Loved it from start to finish.

This film is a wonderful journey through the creative process of an artist "birthing" their first big project. It _is_ all about putting out the vibrations into the world. With impressive visuals, great comedic writing, and superb acting, the film will dazzle and amuse while taking the viewer on the protagonists' journeys. No sentimentality here - the story is both merciful and merciless in its critique of the modern relationship between creator and consumer of art. Strongly recommended.

Beautifully shot. Oddly hilarious. Not to be missed.

I am truly impressed by the great work done by William Cusick and his team in making the film "Pop Meets the Void" It is not often that I watch movies with such painterly quality, and an odd feeling to it. As an artist, I totally related to the story. This is such a nice break from commercial movies. You can feel how each scene was thoughtfully done. I highly recommend it.

it's the story of the artist as species and I love the way this film tells it

First of all, I completely relate to this film. Cusick has somehow stolen how I feel and presented it back to me in a fever dream. His work is always visually mesmerizing. No surprise there. See everything he makes. And I'm also a fan of actor, Nick Bixby, so that's yet another plus. But really, it's the story of the artist as species and I love the way this film tells it.

Such a beautiful and powerful film

Such a beautiful and powerful film!! I absolutely loved it. I highly recommend Pop Meets the Void for artists and non-artists; anyone who is searching for something in life; and/or anyone who is just interested in seeing something new, unusual and really beautiful (and funny!).

Creativity in the void

This film does an amazing job in playing with visual imagery, and in moving between moments of unbridled optimism and moments of self-directed disappointment. The soundtrack is also excellent, and it enhances those feelings, making it clear just how fragile success is. All told, the film captures what it feels like to experience an ongoing struggle between your creative drives and the recognition that most people couldn't care less about your drives. Sometimes you're at the top of your game, but no one else cares. Sometimes you're hitting rock bottom, but the people around you think that you're a locus of creative energy. Sometimes you feel like a fraud, ...

I think the most impressive thing about this film isn't the dazzling visuals or even the deep exploration of art in modern times (the artist and the audience, the artist and fame (vs. "authenticity"), etc), but rather that it has a ton of heart. This is a very funny film in a dead-pan ironic way that employs many tricks from improv comedy. Speaking personally, I can't stand that genre of comedy. Too schmaltzy. I want my irony with some bite and dirt to it. So, given my tastes, I'm always impressed when something that isn't "in line" with them makes ME bend to IT. This film made me think, ...
