This is a fine portrait of Texas songwriter Billie Joe Shaver, a man who has lived a hard life and seems to have made peace with the various human tragedies that befell him. (He lost his son to a drug OD, and his wife to cancer.)
The 56-minute running time left me wanting more.
I'd have liked more live footage and maybe some archival information, but this hour-long documentary lets Billy Joe tell it himself from his heart.
Includes live performances of "Georgia On A Fast Train" and "I'm Just An Old Chunk Of Coal".
Highly, highly recommended.
