This sensitive, informed and ultimately melancholic bio-doc sums it up very eloquently indeed.

While heartbreaking and indirectly depressing, Derailroaded: Inside the Mind of Larry "Wild Man" Fischer is also a very fine documentary indeed.

Both fans and the indifferent will enjoy the strange, strange story of Fischer's life.

While there is an odd sense of artistic purity in Fischer's music, Derailroaded never really answers the aforementioned question. Which is exactly how it should be.
