    Wonderful documentary. It's difficult not to fall for his music, despite how self destructive he is. On screen passion is ripping through the seams of this simple film.

    A music documentary about underseen punk legend Jay Reatard. It's performance-centric, not so much songwriting-centric (which is where I think Reatard most shined), although there are some mixed moments. Kind of cloying, and doesn't say much new/good, and not expertly made, unfortunately.

    Takes a challenging figure from recent punk rock scene and surprisingly humanizes him. Peppered with interviews of his friends and collaborators, along with footage and conversation with Jay filmed in 2009, this documentary takes a deep look into Reatard's career. The evolution from a snot-nosed brat who started making records at age 15 to the complicated lo-fi pop master who died before he hit 30 is remarkable and it definitely appears that Reatard's best work was ahead of him.

    Excellent, compelling, and touching. A great farewell tribute to Jay Reatard.

    A raw look inside the world of indie punk rock legend Jay Reatard mere months before his untimely passing. Acting as both a tribute and examination into what made the often erratic musician tick and how music has shaped him.

    Starts off a bit rocky, but the documentary slowly draws one into the world of Jimmy Lee Lindsey, Jr. through interviews with friends, fans, and Jay Reatard himself.
