    A Poem Is a Naked Person
    A look at Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Leon Russell, compiled from Les Blank's intimate footage of the singer in-studio and on-stage between 1972 and 1974. The film had never been released, but Blank's death in 2013 sparked renewed interest in the footage. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi
