About:
An intimate profile of the late Elliott Smith.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Elliott Smith was unexpectedly thrust into the mainstream spotlight when his song “Miss Misery” was nominated for an Oscar in 1998. He died just five years later, at the age of 34. Structured as both an expansive overview of the singer/songwriter’s life and as an elegiac city symphony focused on the influence of Portland, New York City, and Los Angeles on his music, Nickolas Rossi’s film is an artful tribute to a talent cut too short.
