Well it looks like SXSW went off without a hitch for all of us here at Land Rover Austin, and we were especially thrilled and impressed to see Mike Myers screen his directorial debut with Supermensch!
Mike Myers undertook a marvelous mission by documenting the astonishing career of Hollywood legend Shep Gordon. After a chance encounter with Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, Shep went on to manage an array of outstanding performers including Alice Cooper, Blondie, and Anne Murray. He also produced films, invented the celebrity chef, and worked with the Dalai Lama. Making playful use of archival footage, new interviews, and his own close relationship with the legendary talent manager, Mike Myers revealed a man who has embraced his dualities: a hard driving dealmaker who wants everyone to be happy, and a rock ‘n’ roll hedonist who yearns for a family. Against a backdrop of debauchery, he’s a man on a spiritual quest.
SXSW attracts over 500,000 people to Austin every year to partake in one of the world’s largest film, technology, and music festivals in the world. Austin is not only the live music capital of the world, but it is the place to visit if you are looking to “land” yourself behind the most opulent and capable SUV ever produced!
