beautiful
27 December 2003 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

This film a beautiful portrait of one of the greatest musicians of the last decade. It's an brief look into his world, with Elliott playing three songs for the camera in a small room. The three performances - 'Between the Bars,' a cover of Big Star's 'Thirteen,' and 'Angeles' - are intercut with footage of his hometown, and of him wandering around it. Lucky Three is a powerful film, and an special look into an artist who, during his brief life, shied away from the spotlight. A must see for all fans of Elliott and the wonderful music he left behind.
