I’d like to recommend the movie Be Here To Love Me (2005), a documentary about the late great Townes Van Zandt by director Margareth Brown. If you’re into Van Zandts music, this film is a must-see. Van Zandt was one of the most gifted new songwriters that grew up in the 60’s and he has left a mark on some of todays most influential artist of the country and americana genres.

Here is Nancy Griffith doing a great tribute to Townes playing one of my favourite songs, Tecumseh Valley:

Have you seen the music documentary 30 Century Man about Scott Walker? It’s a must see, a really good documentary about the legendary artist that started out in The Walker Brother but has gone experimental on his later records. The movie has interviews with among others David Bowie, Radiohead, Brian Eno, Allison Goldfrapp, Rob Ellis and Johnny Marr. Check out this trailer:
