  1. Like its star, it's quietly sincere and compulsively watchable.

    "Always be good to rock and roll and it will always be good to you," the film quotes Phil Spector as saying, and a more fitting explanation of the Bingenheimer mystique you'll likely never find.

    An elegy for an aging rock pixie.
  4. With very few natural gifts, Bingenheimer managed to spend his life doing something he loved among people he worshipped. At the end of the game, very few people can make such a claim.

    Hickenlooper can't contain Bingenheimer's incredibly generous spirit -- so generous that, while obviously uncomfortable, he lets the director into his most private moments, including the scattering of his mother's ashes.

    Creepily entertaining.

    The resulting portrait seems cruel at times, and Bingenheimer's little-boy-lost expression can be heartbreaking.
