  • A brief but haunting musical legacy is paid fittingly brief, lyrical tribute in veteran Dutch documentarian Jeroen Berkven's featurette A Skin Too Few.

  • A tender tribute to Nick Drake, the English singer-songwriter who died in 1974.

    May 6, 2004 | Rating: 3/5
  • Less life story than luxuriant mood bath.

    May 4, 2004
  • It's a haunting portrait of a young man who, while genuinely gifted and loved by friends and family, couldn't cope with the world.

Audience Reviews for A Skin Too Few: The Days of Nick Drake

For a documentary about someone who made such wonderful music, this is incredibly boring. The segues between topics were nicely done and wonderfully reflected Nick Drake's music but the rambling musings of Drake's pretentious sister really killed it for me. The commentaries made by those who worked with Drake were kind of interesting but overall this documentary kind of ruined the myth of Drake for me.
