    It's a haunting portrait of a young man who, while genuinely gifted and loved by friends and family, couldn't cope with the world.

    Skin is less life story than luxuriant mood bath.

    Beautifully evokes the enduring appeal of English singer-songwriter Nick Drake.
  4. A cinematic tone poem as much as a biography.

    More popular today than during his lifetime (his music even made it into a Volkswagen commercial), Drake once complained, "Everybody tells me I'm great, but I'm broke. Why?"

    It's a lovely tribute to an extraordinary talent whose music might have been forgotten, and you really couldn't ask for a more beautiful soundtrack.
