Storyline

Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction is a mesmerizing, impressionistic portrait of the iconic actor comprised of intimate moments, film clips from some of his 250 films and his own heart-breaking renditions of American folk songs. Stunningly lensed in color and b/w by Seamus McGarvey, the film explores the actor's enigmatic outlook on his life, his unexploited talents as a musician, and includes candid scenes with David Lynch, Wim Wenders, Sam Shepard, Kris Kristofferson and Debbie Harry. The fragile soul of an actor emerges from the poignant collage. Written by Isotope Films

Great Verite Doc
18 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this twice in the theaters - a rarity for me. The film is part musical (Harry sings quite a few songs), part verite (days in the life of an unsung hero in showbiz), and part retrospective of the man's career. I found this to be a wonderful change of pace from the run-of-the-mill documentary we see every day. Great black and white photography and very interesting conversations with Kris Kristofferson, David Lynch and others. Harry does not 'spell' anything out for you, so don't come looking for answers! Some of the best moments come when we see Harry drinking at his local bar and mingling with the patrons. Make sure you watch the credits for his wonderful rendition of Danny Boy.' Overall, this film is something refreshing and different for those seeking new and unusual ways to piece a documentary together.
