Great Film (No spoilers)
22 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw a screening of this film at the 2008 Florida Film Festival. It was an excellent film. If you get the chance, please go see a screening of this. It's an amazing story about a man that many of us don't know enough about. I myself was enlightened because during high school, I thought Wesley Willis was just a crazy bum who made music. Much to my surprise, he was a genius...among other things.

The audience was packed when I saw the movie and there were cheers after the film. And at the second screening...the audience was packed again.

So please....if you only watch one documentary this year. Check this one out. I'm not just saying this because I have no connections to the film. Other than that I met the filmmakers and they are really cool too. But you have to see this movie. It is very relevant.

Thank you Wesley Willis. And thank you Chris & Kim for making this film.
