Very Extremely Dangerous

4

Rocked and rolled...

Portrait of the piss artist as an old man: in 1959, Jerry McGill flirted with stardom, befriended Elvis and released a single on Sun Records before sliding into a life of crime, prison and obscurity.

In his seventies and dying of cancer, he’s still an outlaw; a mumbling, stumbling hellraiser with a death wish.

Seduced by it all is documentary-maker Paul Duane who gets intertwined with his gonzo geriatric subject as he skips cancer treatment, plays guitar, fights cops and hurtles towards RIP.

Tragic yet hilarious, it’s like watching Hunter S. Thompson’s bucket list.
