Charming Presentation of Fascinating Man
28 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I stumbled on this film on Netflix streaming. I had never heard of Kevin Gant or his music but the plot summary was intriguing and the time commitment (36 minutes) seemed very manageable. Turns out, I would have watched something much longer. Kevin is clearly a poet - every part of the way he talks, sings, even exercises is poetry. He's got a magical mysterious presence, such that you don't want to take your eyes off him even when he's just chatting away behind the steering wheel. The director clearly admires and respects Kevin; the story is presented with loving care and empathy for the man's struggles. The only thing preventing me from giving this a full 10/10 is the somewhat "student film" quality of the movie: pretty scenes should have been prettier, scary scenes should have been scarier. But definitely, still worth a watch.
