About the Movie

Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction is a mesmerizing, impressionistic portrait of the iconic actor comprised of intimate moments, film clips from some of his 200 films and his own heart-breaking renditions of American folk songs. Stunningly lensed in color and black and white by Seamus McGarvey, the film explores the actor’s 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 Deborah Harry.

Customer Reviews

David Lynch in Mojo Magazine:

"When I first saw Harry Dean singing this in the trailer for HARRY DEAN STANTON: PARTLY FICTION I burst into tears. Harry Dean singing Everybody's Talkin' is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen or heard... his ending of the song is pure beauty, deep, deep, deep, beauty... he takes the song and he takes you to another place with it. It's sublime."

Harry Dean Stanton

Beautiful filmmaking and a fascinating, enigmatic subject. I had always thought of Harry as only a great actor and now I know him to be a great musician too.
