Storyline

Documentary traces the career path of American musician Jeff Buckley, beginning with his untimely death in 1997 then backtracking to examine his musical roots. Although mother Mary supplies the story of his early years, the larger part of the narrative unfolds in the words of Jeff's contemporaries; interviews concentrate on bandmates, studio crew, & others who worked with him professionally. It pays special attention to his New York tenure - in particular, his breakout performance at the St. Ann's tribute for biological father Tim, and his appearances at Manhattan's Sin-é - as well as his final days in Memphis. Includes youth photos, little-seen performance clips, exclusive interviews, and archive material. Written by Kay-22

Quotes

Jeff Buckley: Grace is what matters. In anything. Especially life, especially growth, tragedy, pain, love, death. About people, that's what matters. That's a quality I admire very greatly. It keeps you from reaching for the gun too quickly; it keeps you from destroying things too foolishly; it sort of keeps you alive and keeps you open for more understanding.

Another reminder of the world's loss of Jeff
12 April 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Another depressing reminder of the amazing talent and brilliance we lost when Jeff decided to go swimming in Wolf River. I think almost uniquely this is also an uplifting experience apart from the music, that being Mick Grondahl's spiritual revelation of experiencing Jeff's presence even after his death.

The strange thing about Jeff, of course, is that revered and legendary is not apparently what he wanted to be. However, he was given a gift, expressing love through music and that was probably what made him so unique. Whether you believe in God or not or any kind of spirituality, I think there was a feeling of Jeff channeling something far greater than himself through his music. A quote from System of a Down singer Serj Tankian said that music belongs to the universe rather than the artist and I think the incredible effect of Jeff's music on people help to show that.

I believe Jeff's music can bring us closer together and possibly closer to some greater source. Love to you all
