Despite being a bit flat at times and not taking us through all the highs and lows Drake experienced, the film succeeds by bringing us close to its subject, leaving us wanting more and not being afraid to be subtle.

A moving testament to the power that a handful of songs continues to hold.

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.

It's a lovely tribute to an extraordinary talent whose music might have been forgotten, and you really couldn't ask for a more beautiful soundtrack.

May tell a sad story, but it tells it with so much artistry and to such emotional effect that the film is one of those rare works that resonates long after it's over.

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