Scaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000km route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike.Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter's brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively sub-zero desolation of snowbound Finland.Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his "so-small bicycle" are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink.Haunted throughout by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream, and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension.After three months, 20 countries and a 58-degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older.
In Chris Ware's own words, 'Building Stories follows the inhabitants of a three-flat Chicago apartment house: a thirty-year-old woman who has yet to find someone with whom to spend the rest of her life; a couple who wonder if they can bear each other's company for another minute; and finally an elderly woman who never married and is the building's landlady...' The scope, the ambition, the artistry and emotional heft of this project are beyond anything even Chris Ware has achieved before.
If there was one year during the first stage of AC/DC's career while the late Bon Scott was at the helm, which suggested just what glories were in store and what a major and pivotal rock group these Australian reprobates were all set to become, it was 1979.The band started the year putting the finishing touches to their "Highway To Hell" LP - released in the summer to huge critical acclaim and hailed as the group's finest to date - but in the meantime they changed their management and went off to the US to tour relentlessly until the album was released. Back in the UK to support The Who at their largest gig so far, following which they returned to the US for promotion and more touring, the boys were on a roll and loving every second. Then a much deserved break in Australia for Christmas was planned, but wehn Bon Scott returned to the UK in early 1980 he had only a month left to live.This film explores and investigates this most monumental and yet ultimately fatal year for AC/DC Mark I, and with the help of archive footage, rarely seen interviews and contributions from those who were around the band at the time, tells a story of hope, dreams, ambition and enormous talent that would so soon and so tragically be cut short.
