As he does in his roles, Stanton opens himself up to the camera in a way that has the indelible stamp of truth, an almost fragile sense of honesty.

Harry Dean Stanton is a marvelous actor and, at least from a visual standpoint, a marvelous camera subject. He's not much of a talker, though.

Huber responds to Stanton's languid opacity in ways both inspired... and insipid.

Engaging documentary tribute to the craggy character-actor and his five-decade career is elevated by classy visuals and a nicely relaxed, casual tone.
