As in many of the strangest fairy tales, it all starts with a frog. This story, however, is all too real.
“NYT Critic’s Pick! A vertiginous, head-slapping examination of the tangible, unpredictable consequences of making art.” – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
When Matt Furie first created Pepe the Frog, a character in his indie comic Boy’s Club, Matt was an easygoing San Francisco artist and Pepe was a chill frog dude. Through a series of unforeseen events and bizarre connections driven by the internet, Pepe came to be a symbol of hate for the far right. How that exactly happened is a wild journey into the heart of online life today and the memeification of our shared collective culture, where the meanings of images change moment to moment and cannot be controlled even by their creators. Furie decides to fight to take back Pepe from the dark forces that have turned him from a silly comic-book character into their own symbol. But is it already too late? Feels Good Man takes us through a modern-day saga of the internet that must be seen to be believed. (Dir. by Arthur Jones, 2020, USA, 92 mins., Not Rated)
