  • Automorphosis剧情简介
      Automorphosis looks into the minds and hearts of a delightful collection of eccentrics, visionaries and just plain folks who have transformed their autos into artworks.
      On a humorous and touching journey, we discover what drives the creative process for these unconventional characters. And in the end, we find that an art car has the power to change us -- to alter our view of our increasingly homogeneous world.
      
      Subjects featured include: Harrod Blank and his Camera Van; world-renowned spoon-bender Uri Geller and his fork-and-spoon-covered “Peace Car”; Howard Davis’s “Telephone Car,” an obsession-driven telephone collection; and Leonard Knight, a religious folk artist who has painted his vehicles as well as most of an entire mountain in the desert as a testament to his faith.
      Weaving his own tale amidst the others, Blank, as narrator, is the glue that binds these vibrant portraits.
      
      This film looks at the quirky American sub-culture of “outsider,” or folk, artists who transform an iconic American conceit—the car and the road—into unique modes of both expression and transportation.

    很精彩的纪录片。汽车和主人的人生。契合在瞬间完成。惊叹、疑惑、赞美或歧视。别人的眼光可以被无限削减,对于这些人来说,在普通中创造不普通才是乐趣所在。很喜欢纽扣车的设计,而设计又是在叙述里充满了意义。

    片中的每个人都可以这么投入进一件事情去,为自己生活着。虽然那些不能算是什么大艺术作品,却是每个车主心血付出的成果,值得人们尊重。

    每一辆车都承载了车主的梦想,每一样装饰都是他们用心砌好的。

    很有趣。有些流于表面,但在路上的生活方式也就是这样
