Well...I'm more a fan of the documentary than the music.

For the first 20 minutes of the movie I was thinking, "This music is awful, South Africans are crazy," but the story around the music is great. The mystery, the hunt, the resurrection, it has everything.

This is coming out in December as bonus material on The Criterion release of Sam Fuller's Forty Guns. I look forward to the doc as much as the movie.

Stranger still is he plays Royal Albert this week-the show is sold out. Almost needs a 2nd documentary!

Saw this hilarious doc this weekend. P.S. One of the main dorks, the "King" of Kong, has since been discovered as a cheater! Oh the drama.

'Blaze Foley. The duct tape Messiah' (2012)


(This ISN'T the 2018 Ethan Hawke Hollow-wood attempt..) It can be found on vimeo, I believe,..never made a movie house,..this speaks fo its quality. 😊

'Finding Vivian Maier' (2013)


I actual SAW this one, IN a movie theater(!). Albeit, with only six other folks. Right when you think,.."oK. Nice.,...obvious, the rest of the story." It takes a 147* turn(!). Again and again. I enjoyed this one so much, I watch it at least once,...and a while. By the way, "THANKS!", for your recommendations! There looks like some really good stuff here. Winter's booked! gallagher
