enigmatic recluse, 8 July 2004
Author: emilysearle from Savannah, GA

Jandek on Corewood is an film on the reclusive artist that has been around for 25 years. Jandek has influenced Beck, Sonic Yoth, and has been spoken about in interviews by the late Kurt Cobain.

An enigma is the best way to describe him and his music, refusing to do interviews and have his photo taken, or to even reveal who he is has left people even more captivated by him and his music.

This film interviews many people in the music industry who have been fans for years and have collected his records over the past 25 years. They all describe what he and who he is to them.

I liked this film very much, the people who made it (in my opinion) didn't want to make a documentary that tracked him down and tried to interview him finally, they talked to people who had done that and to people who came close. It's as if they don't want to know anymore about him. They just want to take in his music and to believe he is a loner, a man sitting in a dusty room in Texas, playing a guitar only for himself choosing not to become part of the norm and be a truly unique artist both in his image and his sound.
