  1. A warm and feisty documentary that is as much inquiry as it is tribute.
  2. A kind of folktale, rooted in poignant personal experience.
  3. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey

    An unbeatably colorful life story.
  4. 75
    Hovers intriguingly between homage and revenge.

    A long overdue look at the man's art and an unself-pitying and unsparing exploration of her (his daughter's) relationship with him.
  6. Ms. Elliott's film is, in part, an effort to reverse his slow slide into obscurity. On this level it's an unqualified success.
  7. 60
    An unusually rich music doc.
