Fucking Alain Ducasse. This guy is the perfect example of a man in the position of power. Like in all words, he has it all and can do almost anything. He can raise taxes, the price of gasoline, shut down a hospital, he can do it all. The thing is that he always does it, because he is a deeply sensitive and sincere man who cares about the world. You might think that he is so rich, that he has the power to do anything and everything. But you are wrong. Ducasse is a very simple man. Everything is just what it is, and this way, he can tell his story. He tells about his experiences in the hospital, and about what his wife did in prison. He tells how he had a car accident, the meaning of it all. He tells about how he had to keep on carrying his mother's blood pressure and he also had to do it because of the complications of a failed operation. The only part that I found more disturbing was the story of his family, his wife. He wanted to take his family away from the hospital, but his wife was desperate, and he couldn't do it, so he left his wife and her children and the children of his wife to the hospital. I think that he should have the right to do what he wants and he just happened to have a family that gave him this right, and his wife had to accept it. In the end, Ducasse made the hospital happy with his songs. He gave that hospital a message, a little bit of happiness. I think that he gave his wife this right, too, because Ducasse is the reason that the hospital is still a hospital today. Everyone thinks that there are no hospitals, but there are. They still exist, and they still need money. I think that Ducasse is very lucky to have this family, and that hospital was able to give him the right to do anything. I think that you have to admire Ducasse's ability to deal with it all. He did everything he could with his family. It is obvious that he was a very dedicated and sincere man who did everything he could to give his family the best possible situation. It is also a good way to show how much Ducasse cares about his family. This man is a true inspiration. He is the one who inspired me, and now I am in love with him. I am a bit disappointed that I missed the documentary about Ducasse's struggle to save his family, because it would have been really good. He was too much in need of it, and his wife too. He was his wife's only hope. But thank God he did it, and we can all know that he is very grateful for everything that he has.

Ducasse, the man who shot the final, horrible, grotesque shot of the angel falling from the sky, was never taken out of the world of Hollywood. The interviewer to this documentary was a high school student who was studying at a college near Los Angeles. They got on the subject of Ducasse because the story was taking a little too long to get down, and I think they had some questions about the earlier work of Tim Burton. I actually thought the interviewee was a bit on the nose, but they got the point across. There is a lot of loose plot, with things that could be explained easily with a simple Wikipedia search, like the exact meaning of his life's work, or his unsuitability for work that his children would consider difficult to relate to, or how he got his last $100k, or what he used to do to get his workers to carry their own money. There are no heroes in this film, and no villains. There are just choices, and the way the characters (and you, the viewer) find your way in this "non-linear" documentary is really surprising. You have to be willing to be pulled into the world of this man and his work. And you need to be willing to want to see his life. There is also a lot of the viewer in this film being manipulated. They might think they are making a film about the eccentric Dicoteau, when they really are making a film about the eccentric Dicoteau. This is a "film" about what happens when a man and his work do not fit in a rigid and expected fashion. It is an exploration of the artist's craft, but a painful exploration, so I would recommend it to others with some curiosity about cinema, art, and their lives, or people with a more or less open mind. 8/10
