i love rufus wainwright - he's just such an interesting musician and a delightful person. i really enjoyed this documentary because it was light and kind of showed rufus not as some massive out of this world star, but just as a regular person with a family and friends who was trying to make it into music. it was also interesting to see the intricacies that go into making his music. at some points it went a little long for me, but i think that's because i'm not a big "music" person so some of the discussions went right over my head. but overall it was light, enjoyable and informative.

Long time fan of Rufus Wainwright and so is my son which goes to show his music is timeless. The brilliant artist discusses his life and songs. Wonderful

A fascinating documentary on singer & songwriter Rufus Wainwright, interspersed with acoustic performances from Rufus' first four albums. The story of Rufus' early "bursting out of the closet", his friendship with straight friend Teddy Thompson, and his unusual and dysfunctional family is compelling. His rise to fame, and subsequent crash (drug addition and initial commercial failure with the now considered classic second album, Poses) is equally interesting, as are the stories behind the songs. There are good contributions from best friend Jane Adams and fellow musicians Elton John , Jake Shears and Tom Chaplin, and the "unplugged" songs are breathtaking.
