Excellent and moving
12 August 2011 | by (Marshall Islands) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Columbia Gorge Film Festival in Vancouver, Washington in August of 2011. After viewing the film on opening night, Kevin played 2 songs. After the film showing Jay Duplass, the director of the film, had explained how, as a young man in film school in 1991, he had seen Kevin play and had instantly become a fan of Kevin Gant's very unusual music (Jimmy Hendrix dressed in a jogging outfit playing Flamingo guitar with New Age lyrics). The moment Kevin played his 2 songs after the film, I knew exactly what Jay was talking about. I was hooked. Bought his CD and kept it in the car player for days. Kevin's amazing personality carries us through this documentary. An outstanding film about an extraordinarily interesting personality that benefited both the subject and the film maker. I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed Kevin perform if for only 2 songs. Wow. Original. Unique. Motivational. Great film. Highly recommended.
