Temple’s newest rockumentary follows the final months of former Dr. Feelgood and Ian Drury guitarist Wilko Johnson, a recent widower with inoperable pancreatic cancer. The film expounds on Johnson’s personal philosophy and newfound joie de vivre (cemented by his terminal diagnosis) through inventive images created for the film as well as from Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal and Sergei Parajanov’s The Color of Pomegranates. This energetic, sui generis portrait of one atheist’s last stand also details Johnson’s weeklong collaboration with fellow veteran rocker Roger Daltrey and features archival concert footage.
