    Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him?) (2010)


    Storyline

The film includes new and archive audio and film including interviews with Robin Williams, Yoko Ono, Van Dyke Parks, Randy Newman, Ray Cooper, the Smothers Brothers, and Micky Dolenz.

    • Let's Get Lost(1988)

      This documentary about jazz trumpeter-singer Chet Baker intercuts footage from the 1950s, when he was part of West Coast Cool, and from his last years. We see the young Baker, he of the beautiful face, in California and in Italy, where he appeared in at least one movie and at least one jail cell (for drug possession). And, we see the aged Baker, detached, indifferent, his face a ruin. Includes interviews with his children and ex-wife, women companions, and musicians.

    This documentary explores the difficulties that top-rated musicians face being the faceless side of an artist: the good, the bad, and the ugly. It's a very unique glimpse into the world behind the curtain of a stage or the door of a control room.



    BTW, available on Netflix and your favorite stop on the dark side. :)

    Of course, this about the greatest studio musicians that have ever or will ever gather in a studio that helped realize some of the great music we listen to.

    Lucien Ginsburg, a rebellious French Jewish boy with a grotesque imagination, hates playing the piano like his father, a bar professional, and manages to be admitted to Montmartre Academy as a painter, where he befriends an SS officer who helps him survive the occupation. After the war, he chooses to become a performing artist and adopts the stage name Serge Gainsbourg. His unorthodox songs bring him success, even his parents's approval, and lots of lovers, yet his marriages are all utter failures. Written by KGF Vissers
