Following on from Barbaric Genius, Paul Duane’s new documentary, Very Extremely Dangerous, takes us deep into the shambolic world of Jerry McGill, an aging rocker and one-time minor film star who spurned a rock’n’roll career for a life of crime, robbing banks and running from the FBI. When, after three jail sentences, aged 70 and suffering from terminal cancer, McGill announced his return to the business, Duane headed impetuously for Memphis on his trail. Darkly compelling with a fresh, off-kilter energy, the film demonstrates that love, friendship and art can play a role even within the most toxic, self-destructive lives.
