Casale and Mothersbaugh on 'Island of Lost Souls' (2011)
*** (out of 4)
Gerald Casale and Mark Mothersbaugh of DEVO fame get the biggest featurette on Criterion's ISLAND OF LOST SOULS disc. The two men were major fans of the 1932 classic and they explain why, how they discovered it and why it had such a major impact on the band. I think this featurette is going to appeal to fans of DEVO much more than fans of the actual film, although those fans will still be mildly interested in the stories being told. Both Casale and Mothersbaugh gives an interesting impression on the movie and I'm not going to lie, I found their theories to be rather thought-provoking to say the least. We see clips from not only the 1932 film but also their short film IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE END: THE TRUTH ABOUT DE-EVOLUTION.
