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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: You won't learn much, but you'll be strangely happy that you didn't.
Fresh: At the film's heart is a fitful conversation that unfolds like a string of koans, epigrams, jokes and silences. And songs.
Fresh: Engaging documentary tribute to the craggy character-actor and his five-decade career is elevated by classy visuals and a nicely relaxed, casual tone.
Fresh: A film that's in perfect sync with its subject.
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."

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.
