Heaven Adores You is an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith. By threading the music of Elliott Smith through the dense, yet often isolating landscapes of the three major cities he lived in -- Portland, New York City, Los Angeles -- Heaven Adores You presents a visual journey and an earnest review of the singer's prolific songwriting and the impact it continues to have on fans, friends, and fellow musicians.Written by

I hoped i could see more of Elliott, i.e unscreened interviews or unreleased songs, this documentary could have been 20 minutes, instead its one and a half hour of boring footage of streets trains houses and so on, also, Nicholas Rossi milked this for years until i finally could watch it outside of the states, man what a disappointment.
Some of the interviews was interesting, but it just doesn't hold up at all, Nicholas Rossi made this to make money, and it shows, Elliott would turn in his grave if he knew this would be released. Im just so saddened that this was allowed.
Lets hope someone that actually uses footage from his life, and actually knows Elliotts story, describing an proper "life and death" of this wonderful man makes a proper documentary.
