The name’s Bond? Director Matthew Bauer discusses his 007-related doco

The Australian director hopes to leave audiences shaken and stirred by asking what life is like for those nominally bonded to Bond.

What if you shared a name with one of the most famous (fictional) men in the world? And what if that name is Bond, James Bond?

These are the questions Australian filmmaker Matthew Bauer’s new documentary The Other Fellow seeks to answer. Featuring stories from a Swedish 007 super-fan with a WWII past, a gay New York theatre director, an African American Bond accused of murder, and two resilient women caught up in it all, the film examines masculinity, gender, race, and life in the shadows of a pop culture icon.
