  • His influence can be found deeply etched into the work of musicians from many different generations, but his name is barely known outside a close-knit circle of musicians, music fans, and critics. This film goes some way to paying a long-overdue debt to the late genre-hopping singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt, with rare footage and warm testimonials from the likes of Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, and a hilarious, tequila-swigging Guy Clark combining to tell Van Zandt's remarkable tale.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Ms. Brown has gathered an impressive array of clips from television interviews and live performances and arranged them into a rough chronology."
    New York Times

    "[E]ngrossing and poignant.Filled with appearances by celebrated performers who are simply fans of this legendarily troubled figure with the aching voice and haunted Lincoln-esque look."
    Los Angeles Times

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[This] supremely crafted documentary paints a stark portrait..."
    Rolling Stone

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[Brown] captures the dry humour and easy charm that drew people to Van Zandt....Brown's film is intended more as a meditative, melancholy tone poem."
