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

PLOT HARRY DEAN STANTON: PARTLY FICTION is a 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.

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.

All this movie prove is that HDS is a nutcase. He no longer knows where he is and smokes like a fiend.

It's actually rather sad because he REALLY donest know where he is.

David Lynch arrives and tries to prop him up but doesn't succeed.

It's really sad watching a movie where the main guy clearly just want to go to sleep.
