Cutesy & Authentic

Good doc on two artists & their struggles and how each compliment each other. Feel sorry for the son who had to endure their drunken tirades when he was younger.
Good value if you like documentaries about artists lives yet other than that it might be a high price to pay.

Touching Doc

I saw this doc at the cinema and highly recommend it. A truly moving and well made documentary.


One of the best films of the year. A towering achievement. Absolutely Unforgettable.
