Storyline

In Europe, they speak of him in holy whispers. In America, he's a mysterious footnote. Poised for huge commercial success, Jeff Buckley's untimely death kept him on the periphery of popular music. "Amazing Grace: Jeff Buckley", a passionately crafted documentary, sets out to investigate the extraordinary phenomenon of Jeff Buckley, a deceased musician of modest commercial success, with only one full-length album, who has become a veritable tour de force of inspiration for artists across the globe. Interviews include all four of the Jeff Buckley Band members, friends, family, colleagues, critics, DJ's, producers, and fans. From Sydney, New York, and London to Memphis, Montpelier, and Los Angeles, the film takes viewers on an expansive yet incredibly intimate trip through the world of Jeff Buckley, and explores how he continues to inspire his fans - from classical composers to rock n' roll superstars and everyone in-between.

Powerful introduction to Buckley
3 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

Amazing Grace is a solid introduction (made by two Buckley fans) to the most extraordinary singer and musician to come out of the 1990's. The true core of this doc revolves around the talent and allure that creates the kind of artist who influences people rather than just entertains them. The film's narrative is unusual in that it subtly entwines the progression of Buckley's musical career with stories from different artists who describe how Jeff personally inspired them.

The time frame focuses on his early years in NYC to his last months in Memphis before he drowned. Even though it only runs about an hour, and doesn't answer a lot of questions about Buckley's personal life, it leaves a strong sense of who he was as an artist and human being. I caught the film at the Seattle Film Festival years ago and remember it deeply resonating. I only just realized the film had finally been released and bought the DVD as part of the Grace Around The World DVD set.
