This may not be a solid biography, but it feels true.
[An] honest, sobering and poignant tribute to a tortured talent who died young and left behind a treasure chest of songs.
A documentary that in its spirit and feel catches some of the vulnerability and naive optimism of its subject, Van Zandt.
A less-than-satisfying examination of the country singer's art, career and demons.
Rather than connecting all the chronological dots, Brown has fashioned Van Zandt's balm-to-the- brokenhearted legacy into potent cinematic poetry.
A sobering but compassionate look at a man who ultimately might have been even more troubled than gifted.
A textured, elegiac, and deeply plangent music documentary. Brown's film, never exposing Van Zandt to too much harsh light, preserves this enigma just enough that it makes you want to go back to the music after you've caught these glimpses of the man.
A surprisingly deep understanding of an otherwise obscure artist.
While the film lacks polish, there's enough good material and good performances to keep everything on track.
Loving but unflinching documentary on celebrated singer and songwriter Townes Van Zandt.
Van Zandt gets his own documentary
He may not have been a good guy, but fellow musicians tend to focus on his work and they can't say enough good things about his talent. They sing his praises and sing his songs.
