Movie Info

This fascinating documentary offers a look at the life of legendary performer Hank Williams. Stricken with drugs and drink, Williams died at age 29 after transforming the country genre beyond all recognition. Although he didn't leave behind much material (an estimated 88 songs were recorded in his lifetime), it seemed like everything Hank touched turned to musical gold, including such classic tracks as "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Your Cheatin' Heart," "Cold, Cold Heart," and many others. Drawing on rare interview material, performances, and photographs, HONKY TONK BLUES offers a moving portrait of the man.

This was an excellent documentary. I have always enjoyed his recordings, but never realized what a star he was. The interviews with those who were close to him were very touching. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who enjoys country music or the blues.
