Disappointing to say the least
19 July 2015 | by megamoto85See all my reviews

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.
