Mx Justin Vivian Bond,
This is a documentary about the legendary music icon with the support of his family, friends, and famous fans. I'm only a passing fan of his more iconic songs after being revived in his later years. By the time I got into music in the 80s, he was already at his low point. Of course, his cover of "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails broke my heart although I did hear his music before then.
This is a rather traditional style of doc with interviews recounting his life and his career. There isn't much shockingly new especially if you've seen the biopic. It's great to see the old footage of June performing on her own. All the old footage is compelling. The fawning fandom by all the famous artists does get repetitive. I rather hear about some small interesting little side story about his career. When he makes the comeback, I start to recognize the story for real. I'm glad they did a section on Hurt. This is one for his fans.
