John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix) loves to just live into the day. He encounters the difficult aspects of his everyday life with cynical humour and a little too much alcohol. This preference has fatal consequences after an overflowing binge drinking tour: After a serious car accident, John ends up in hospital, where he learns that he will never be able to walk again. Although this message threatens to put him in a deep hole, he is persuaded to take part in a withdrawal therapy with the Anonymous Alcoholics. On the hard way out of addiction John discovers his talent for biting cartoons - a talent that will lead his life in a whole new direction…

In his latest film "Don't Worry, Running Away Does Not" Gus Van Sant adapts the autobiography of the legendary cartoonist John Callahan. Twenty years ago Van Sant wanted to film the story together with Robin Williams, but it never happened. After long discussions the filmmaker had with Callahan before his death in 2010, he was able to work out the script in a way that would do justice to the unusual life story of the controversial artist. After further long years of planning, the project could finally be realized with Joaquin Phoenix in the leading role.

He plays the "strangest man on four wheels", as Robin Williams once called John Callahan, really great. His play blends perfectly into Van Sant's production, which manages a successful balancing act between comedy and drama and which luckily never gets too thick, even in more emotional scenes. The good cast, from which especially Jonah Hill stands out in a very unusual role, but also Jack Black, is also supported by scenes in which Callahan's cartoons are brought to life.

This is how "Don't Worry, Running Away Doesn't Go" is a dramaturgically, acting and visually successful film. A little too long perhaps, but overall a rousing insight into the life of an artist who has not been undisputed, but in any case with his cartoons has set the trend for the scene. For this there is a very clear one: Worth seeing!
