Anyone who was following genre films keenly around the early 2000s will remember the rise and fall of Uwe Boll, the German filmmaker who has churned out some of the worst films of all time.
For a while there Boll made some films with serious budgets including adaptations of video games like “House of the Dead,” “Alone in the Dark,” “In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale,” “Far Cry” and arguably his best work “Bloodrayne”.
Reviews for the films were unanimously terrible and box-office wasn’t much better, but Boll continued working with shrinking budgets and a desire to be edgier. Now both a cult legend and a joke, a new feature documentary is on the way that explores the unique life and career of the notorious renegade filmmaker who closed out working as a director in 2016 and now runs the Vancouver restaurant Bauhaus which is getting far better reviews than his films.
As you can see in the trailer below for “F–k You All: The Uwe Boll Story,” the feature includes personal interviews with Boll himself, people who have worked alongside him, his harshest critics and everyone in-between, this paints an interesting portrait of a madman who once commanded tens of millions in budgets, and at others has seen petitions with hundreds of thousands of signatures asking him to stop making movies.
