Storyline

In Europe, they speak of him in holy whispers. In America, he's a mysterious footnote. Poised for huge commercial success, Jeff Buckley's untimely death kept him on the periphery of popular music. "Amazing Grace: Jeff Buckley", a passionately crafted documentary, sets out to investigate the extraordinary phenomenon of Jeff Buckley, a deceased musician of modest commercial success, with only one full-length album, who has become a veritable tour de force of inspiration for artists across the globe. Interviews include all four of the Jeff Buckley Band members, friends, family, colleagues, critics, DJ's, producers, and fans. From Sydney, New York, and London to Memphis, Montpelier, and Los Angeles, the film takes viewers on an expansive yet incredibly intimate trip through the world of Jeff Buckley, and explores how he continues to inspire his fans - from classical composers to rock n' roll superstars and everyone in-between.

With this 'movie', Jeff Buckley untruthfully got the chance to be measured on the same shelf as other mediocre artists like Bon Jovi
22 December 2007 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Since his sudden death, Jeff Buckley represents what has been a crucially missing part from modern contemporary music. He pushed the boundaries deliberately and put down decades worth of material onto just two discs. He is missed and this documentary is just another proof of his much missed presence. This documentary has been created on the basis of his short lived carrier - with results pretty much arguable. Unfortunately the way one remaining relative handles the legacy of Jeff's music is pretty much unloyal. A shame that hundreds of hours of live material is resting in the lap of his mother who only wants to preserve his son's legacy by not releasing a thing from Jeff's vaults but creating false myths and productions based on doubtful theories (just like this release.) Numerous FM recordings are laying ahead without the slightest chance of getting released in their finest, pristine quality because of other "would-be" business things apart from Columbia. Unfortunately not one box set has emerged glorifying Jeff's spectacular live performances since his tragic quit in 1997.

While we have real documentaries and footages of him performing we could make more out of his magnificent art. Period.
