Amazing Documentary
20 June 2003 | by (New Mexico) – See all my reviews

You may never have heard of 'rock, punk, soul' musician, Jon E. Edwards, but if you see this documentary covering a year or so of his life, you'll never forget him. He's naturally funnier and more insightful than any character in any scripted film you've ever seen. Jon E. took 3 years off his New York music career to move back into his 'old room' in his Mother's LA home to help her during an illness. This introduces a sweetness and sadness that brilliantly offsets the humor of the rest of the film. Shot on digital video and beautifully processed into anamorphic black and white, the film was masterfully edited and scored. If you ever get a chance to see "Jon E. Edwards Is In Love", don't hesitate to go out of your way to do so.
