Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction

© Frenetic Films

★★★½

Unsurprisingly, Partly Fiction works best when Stanton is given the time to express himself, to form his thoughts, to muse, even if his frequent musical intermezzos – his musical talent becomes obvious in his stunning rendition of Fred Neil’s "Everybody’s Talkin'" – do little more than stretch the whole affair to its 77-minute length. Indeed, the film shines brightest when it silently embraces Stanton’s faintly nihilistic love for the futility of things.

Ganze Kritik auf The Zurich English Student (online einsehbar).
