To call Russell Brand a polarizing figure in the realm pop culture
would be something of an understatement. Over the years, the comedian,
actor and author has concocted a public persona that is equal parts
amusing and annoying, and there doesn't seem to be much middle ground
when it comes to opinions of his particular - well, "brand" of humor.
The documentary Brand: A Second Coming, which opened the 2015 SXSW Film
Festival, seeks to explore the many facets of Brand's personality. Not
a stone is left unturned here, from Brand's early days as a comedian
and talk show host, to his headline-making romance with pop singer Katy
Perry, to his current mission to spark change in the political and
While much of the material is undeniably funny, director Ondi Timoner
certainly isn't afraid to let things get a bit darker. Home video
footage of Brand in his younger days, slumped against the wall of his
apartment and smoking methamphetamine, offers a very candid
representation of his well-documented battle with drug addiction.
Timoner also examines Brand's recovery, which ultimately led to another
addiction that was arguably just as harmful: sex. And of course, his
highly publicized marriage to (and divorce from) Katy Perry doesn't
escape the scrutiny of Timoner's camera.
But for every melancholy moment, there are just as many entertaining
and engaging scenes, much of it culled from talk show interviews and
some of Brand's stand-up comedy performances. The documentary was
actually being produced during the time Brand was creating his Messiah
Complex special, and footage from this performance is weaved throughout
the film as Brand discusses many of the figures which would inspire the
finished product, and ultimately help to inform the belief system he
Brand: A Second Coming also spends a hefty amount of time on Brand's
desire to enact social and political change, and his belief that a
revolution is not only a necessity, but an inevitability. His beliefs
may be a bit too radical for some, but it's nearly impossible not to
admire him for his conviction and dedication to those beliefs - even if
he sometimes has trouble balancing his activism with his desire to
remain in the public consciousness.
With Brand: A Second Coming, Timoner has constructed an interesting and
enlightening portrait of one of pop culture's most fascinating figures.
It's doubtful that anyone viewing the documentary will have their
opinion of Brand swayed in one direction or another, but it does shed
some light on the influences and experiences that have shaped him into
the person we see today.
