All Cast & Crew >>

This impressionistic portrait of iconic actor Harry Dean Stanton is composed of intimate moments, film clips from some of his 250 films and his own heart-breaking renditions of American folk songs. The film explores his enigmatic outlook on his life, his unexploited talents as a musician and includes candid reminiscences by David Lynch, Wim Wenders, Sam Shepard, Kris Kristofferson and Debbie Harry. Stanton talks about his friends Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, how his family influenced his musical leanings, the women he almost wed and his preference for film over theatre.
