About the Movie
WILD COMBINATION is director Matt Wolf’s visually absorbing portrait of the seminal avant-garde composer, singer-songwriter, cellist, and disco producer Arthur Russell. Before his untimely death from AIDS in 1992, Arthur prolifically created music that spanned both pop and the transcendent possibilities of abstract art. Now, over fifteen years since his passing, Arthur's work is finally finding its audience. Wolf incorporates rare archival footage and commentary from Arthur's family, friends, and closest collaborators—including Philip Glass and Allen Ginsberg—to tell this poignant and important story.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A tender, fascinating documentary by Matt Wolf, will delight the cult and instantly convert new members.
Fresh: It's the perfect image for a man whose vivid music appeared to be fighting its way into sharper focus.
Fresh: Wild Combination celebrates a city that could (and still can) attract a gay weirdo from the Corn Belt to record avant-Buddhist chants with Allen Ginsberg, play cello on an early version of 'Psycho Killer' and produce some of the greatest disco ever.
