As a recent transplant to Atlanta, I had very little hope in finding anything meaningful in this all too corporate wasteland. That was radically changed when I saw Benjamin Smoke, at a local art house theater. Filmed with a variety of film, including 8mm b/w, this is a sparce, and stark film. It neither tells the complete story of Richard "Benjamin" Dickerson, nor does it shed much light on the alternative music scene of Atlanta. What it does do, is give a clear picture of a man living life to his fullest, and giving his all to his music, while dying of AIDS. I highly recommend this film. 10/10.
