Super Duper Alice Cooper

The most vivid and comprehensible peek into the life of Vincent Furnier.

There comes a point in the career of a storied musician like Alice Cooper where you have to ask, just how much more do we really need to know about this guy? The man born Vincent Furnier has been the subject of countless magazine features, and tales of his exploits continue to be passed down like some sort of rock ’n’ roll journalist’s flame. His own book, Golf Monster, demystified the man in his own words through anecdotes about golf, and got pretty tiresome to those not already passionate about the game. The truth is, there’s really nothing more we need to know about the beheadings, the infamous chicken incident, or the baby doll mutilations. Where Super Duper Alice Cooper succeeds is in offering a glimpse into the day-to-day life of the man, from Day One. Documentary footage, new and old, blends with animation and concert clips, and the result is perhaps the most vivid and comprehensible peek into the man’s life that we’ve ever had the opportunity to enjoy.
