The Devil and Daniel Johnston
A decade after wowing critics with his debut feature Half Japanese: The Band That Would Be King, director Jeff Feuerzeig finally delivered his sophomore effort -- a documentary about the life and music of singer/songwriter Daniel Johnston. Using archived film clips and recordings with newly shot footage and interviews, the film paints a detailed and honest picture of the tortured genius. The Devil and Daniel Johnston premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    "The Devil and Daniel Johnston" is an astute, objective account of the life (so far) of Daniel Johnston, an influence for artists such as Kurt Cobain, Jad Fair, and Sonic Youth, among several others. Engrossing and eloquent, the film also exposes the viewer to Johnston's music as it should be: In the course of revealing this brilliant, troubled man's life.
