I wish I could give more than 10! I can't understand why anyone says that Lou Reed is an "indifferent performer". It is his laid-back, laconic style, whilst delivering lyrics of such power and dark energy that makes him the genius he is. I loved this film and was particularly moved by Antony's beautiful and original "Candy Says".... Schnabel and Reed made the perfect film partnership.
Everything Reed has done, from his early days with the V.U., is brilliant, and what I admire particularly is the huge variation in genre, in both the music and the content of his songs. There is the less well know album in homage to Warhol, for instance, not often mentioned, but containing some wonderful lyrics and also collaborating with the great John Kale. Reed is God.
