Very entertaining!

I saw this at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin Texas. I can't say enough good things about this movie. The film follows the life of the fictional Guy Terrifico, who made his way up the country music charts in the early 1970's along with greats like Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. The interviews with these country music stars is what gives this film its authentic touch as well as laugh out loud humor. The performance and musical talent of the films star, Matt Murphy, draws you into the often inebriated world of Guy Terrifico. He captures the essence of a true poet who is swept up in the world of super stardom. I talked to many people after the screening who didn't realize they were watching a mockumentary until the end of the film. They thought Guy Teriffico really existed. That's the mark of good film-making. SEE THIS FILM!
