Where there's smoke, there's often fire. Where there's Marilyn Manson, there's often controversy. The shock rocker's directorial debut, Phantasmagoria: The Visions Of Lewis Carroll, has reportedly been put on hold, says the NME. The film about the Alice in Wonderland author may be indefinitely sidelined, thanks to the backlash that ensued due to its violent, sexual trailer. That's not a shock, since Manson likes to push buttons, envelopes, boundaries, etc.
The biopic stars Tilda Swinton and Lily Cole and it focuses on the dark side of the author.
Should the film be allowed to go on as planned? Do you think Manson will have made a good film when all is said and done or do you fear the project will have drifted into Self-Indulgent-ville, as often happens with subversive artists?
