“Makes powerful use of family and personal footage to tell the story of a talented man beset by personal demons.”

“As the tragedy unfolds, there’s a strange solace in seeing this captivating enigma somehow emerging intact.”
“It should prove essential viewing for the subject's fans: a tender portrait of the man's highs and lows that sheds new light on the broken years that directly preceded his suicide at 37.”
