The Seventh Python review: "A marvelous, thought-provoking, important meditation on art and fame... asking very deep questions"

The two-night festivities for the world premiere of The Seventh Python that included last night's rousing solo performance by Neil Innes (attended by the likes of Jeff Lynne, Joe Walsh and Dan Castellenata, was a rousing success for the Mods & Rockers Film Festival, the American Cinematheque and our pals at Frozen Pictures, who are getting some of the best reviews of their careers. One of the latest comes from David Isaak, author of the new book, Shock and Awe on his Tomorrowville website:

"The Seventh Python was a marvelous, thought-provoking film. Rather than a rehash of the career of Neil Innes, it was an important meditation on the problem of art and fame….

"Neil Innes lives permanently on the edge between fame and anonymity, and it's clear that particular edge is an uncomfortable place to reside. He obviously doesn't want to be a celebrity--but he also needs to maintain a certain degree of public prominence to have the means to do his art.

"Anyone who works in the creative arts, from the very public world of performance to the more private world of writing, ought to see this film. Beneath a light, fluffy surface, it is asking some very deep questions."
