Kirby at War: La Guerre De Kirby

Kirby at War: La Guerre De Kirby

Black Panther, the Avengers, Hulk, Fantastic Four, The X-Men, Thor, Iron Man - to name only some of the best known super-heroes created in the 1960s by comic book artist Jack Kirby, the super heroes which today, dominate the world wide blockbuster box office cinema. This definite, comprehensive documentary, examines the work of Jack Kirby from the prism of his experience as a young American soldier in WWII France, and how this artist went to be known as "The King of Comics". What was the influence of Kirby's traumatic experience in the war fields, where he was twice almost fatally wounded, on his body of work as a the creator of super heroes and how this terrifying self defining experience, inspired him to create Captain America, and so many others characters as the war came to a close. Beyond WWII, this documentary approaches the impact of Jack Kirby's work on contemporary art, cinema and video games, making him one of the most exciting artists of the 20th century.

One of the greatest films ever made. Please do not watch it on TV because Jean Depelley tuned the editing in such a precise way that simply pausing for a commercial break can literally affect the way your brain processes this masterpiece.
