Enchanting (the film, not the music)
14 December 2003 | by (Eastern Seaboard, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A strangely moving and well-produced chronicle of a legendary musical enigma, Jandek on Corwood captures the mystique of this reclusive human question mark without dispelling it. As with Joseph Lanza's terrific book 'Elevator Music,' the film, in my estimation, is more absorbing than the music itself. One fan observed that what Jandek creates isn't music -- it's an atmosphere. This film's shadowy, understated tone echoes its subject's spooky aura.

Recommended, even if you don't know -- or if you loathe -- Jandek's recordings.
