A fan's documentary - it shows, thank God!
25 October 2001 | by (Mars) – See all my reviews



The director adores Screaming Jay. This is not a cold, academic approach to his work. It is the study of a genious by a man who clearly knows what he's doing. The interviews from Jarmush and Diamanda Gallas were great touches and the whole thing plays great - you never get bored with it.

All in all, one of the best documentaries on a cult icon I've seen for years.
