Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon (R)
Documentary 84 June 6, 2014
"I've met more famous people through Shep Gordon than through all my other friends combined," says Sammy Hagar, in what seems like the definitive Supermensch sound byte. But, as Gordon himself says, "Fame has no intrinsic value." Consider that he also has been famously successful with the ladies — unless you count success as finding one to have a baby with, as he says he wants to do. The time Gordon woke up in the hospital, the holder of his hand was his personal assistant, who now tearfully recalls how sad that made her feel for him. Meanwhile, his romance with Sharon Stone obviously didn't last, but at least it led to him meeting the Dalai Lama. Spry, if sprawling, Supermensch warmheartedly affirms the Gordonian style of karmic contemplation.
