OTTAWA PREMIERE | OFFICIAL SELECTION SILVERDOCS 2011
This intimate, posthumous portrait of post-punk firebrand Jay Reatard (who died in 2010, at 29) started life as a promotional short, but evolved into a truly great rock doc, “a sad, exhilarating, and ultimately inspiring documentary about a complicated young man.” (IFC)
