Storyline

Gatling Pictures' "Cure for Pain: The Mark Sandman Story" examines the life and work of Mark Sandman, deceased frontman of Boston "low rock" band Morphine. From his Newton, Mass., roots to his travels across America and around the globe, Sandman left an indelible imprint as one of the most distinctive musicians of his generation. Along with revisiting the "unique and sultry sound" of his music, the film explores the meaning of family through this critically praised and personally conflicted singer, songwriter and innovative instrumentalist.

2-string slide base, bari sax and drums. Really?
27 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Ben Harper describing Morphine - perfectly. You gotta hand it to him. 90 min of Morphine overload. Reminded me of The Doors. The man had similar talk, similar music, similar acting. A poet with a mystical charisma. An original being. A genius. Real life, real experience, real music. He lived music, music lived through him. A must see for all the Morphine fans and fans of music in general. If you can, go see it on a big screen with a system. This way you can feel it like a concert. Nice, long music parts, great video inserts, colorful interviews. Nice music, nice poetry, nice people. King of cool, Mr. Sandman. And take a girl. Or you can always find one
