Townes van Zandt:
Aloneness is a state of being whereas loneliness is a state of feeling. It's like being broke and being poor.

Great look into a songwriter whom will be hard to surpass
I went to see this film with a limit knowledge of the mans music and next to nothing on the life of the man. This film give a great look into a songwriter that has the ability to put into word, what many people will fail to feel in their lifetime. The mix of footage from the Townes own home footage to live performances and interviews with the people who know him make the whole experience a full one and as you leave you will understand how unique he was, his talent was and his effect on people. The film has been made is such a way that it provides a full spectrum into the life. You will both laugh and feel sorrow at the events that made up the life of Townes Van Zandt.
A must see for music lovers.....
