#66 FILMED IN SUPERMARIONATION. THE DEFINITIVE DOCUMENTARY

#66 FILMED IN SUPERMARIONATION. THE DEFINITIVE DOCUMENTARY

Directed by Stephen La Rivière.

The history of Gerry Anderson's AP Film company as told via a chronology of its output from Twizzle, through Four Feathers Fall, Supercar, Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlett to The Secret Service. The brief seems to be, hence the title, if it had puppets it's in the movie! So we sadly stop short of UFO but, thankfully miss Space 1999.

Talking to the surviving crew members, Parker and Lady Penelope (who act as our guides to this biography), various living voice actors and recorded interviews this is a glorious and deeply involving documentary that if you're a fan of Gerry Anderson's fantastic output, like I am, you're gonna bloody love!

With unseen behind the scenes footage, reminiscences and clips galore this, this is practically note perfect which makes you ache for more and sob for what was lost.
9/10
