I Am Thor

I recently watched this documentary on Netflix, about this guy – the titular Thor – who had a brief flash of fame in the 70s/80s as a hard rock/heavy metal singer, and who decides to try and make a comeback in the last decade (and is still trying). It’s not as interesting as the recent Twisted Sister documentary I watched. I think it would have been better to see more footage covering the period when he was at his height of popularity – instead, this focuses on the his decade-long “comeback,” which is well, modest if endearing. It is quite fascinating to see how far and long a person can devote energy to trying to capture something that probably isn’t capturable, and it does have a pretty nice (in an Anvil kinda way) ending.
