Mockumentary!? Why?

Why was this done in the style of a Mockumentary when John Bolton is a real artist? John Bolton (played by John O'Mahony) was really hamming it up wasn't he! There were actors playing some of the parts, and several comedic celebs playing themselves in a rather pretentious, but not quite jokey, but certainly not serious manner.

What the hell does the 'real' John Bolton make of this?

I found the whole thing puzzling. Whatever they were trying to do, it didn't quite work.

It was neither funny nor creepy, and actually quite boring.

The accompanying film entitled: 'A Short Film About, A Short Film About John Bolton' was actually more entertaining.


If I remember, the real John Bolton makes a cameo at the art gallery. I'd assume that he enjoyed it and got a kick out of it.
