This video documentary by Greg Gibbs begins as a profile of Long Gone John, whose Los Angeles punk and garage label Sympathy for the Record Industry has released more than 750 records (including the first three by the White Stripes). But in exploring John's obsessive collecting of seedy pop-culture arcana, Gibbs ends up examining LA's so-called “lowbrow” art scene and its most celebrated figure, painter and comics artist Robert Williams. The colorful assortment of talking heads—including poster artist Frank Kozik and Blag Dahlia of the Dwarves—keeps this lively, as does the humorous computer animation. 100 min.
