Overseas, they call them photonovellas — comic books made not with drawings but photographs accompanied by written dialogue and captions. This American try at the form concerns sleazeball celebrity-photographer ”Monster” McGowran. A hardcore paparazzo with no life, he hates the stars, and the stars hate his hostile, intrusive camera. McGreal sets it up so we despise McGowran — that is, until he barges into a new, exclusive hangout where the biggest star turns into a literal monster. What the photographer uncovers turns him into exactly what he never wanted to be: a celebrity. It’s a beautiful nightmare of a fable, superbly shot and edited.
