George talks to musician Sam Mickens about one of his favorite docs LOST SOUL: THE DOOMED JOURNEY OF RICHARD STANLEY'S ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU (2014, David Gregory)
It's the mid-'90s. British/South African horror director Stanley pitches a version of the H.G. Wells novel The Island of Dr. Moreau and New Line Cinema picks it up. Some huge movie stars get attached and the set becomes a war of egos, bad weather, worse attitudes, and inevitable chaos. Stanley is sent packing, but this is not the last we see of him.
Sam Mickens is a native Angeleno, musician, writer, multidisciplinary artist, and now President/head of programming for Another World is Possible, a new politics and culture streaming service and news network.
*Abuse accusations leveled against Stanley came to light in 2021.
