The Devil and Daniel Johnston

This is my favourite movie of recent memory: a documentary about a crazy genius. The rise and fall and leveling out of a creative soul who suffered greatly with mental illness, struggled with demons, and created reams of fantastic raw music, art, animation, and film because he had no other alternative. I’ve been a Daniel Johnston fan since 1993, when Kurt Cobain was wearing his “Hi, How Are You” t-shirt to every Nirvana photoshoot, and I never fully realized how messed up and mythological Dan’s life really was. He joined a carnival, he crashed an airplane, he sneaked onto MTV. Amazing.


Now go buy it or rent it. You can also find a lot of Daniel’s music DRM free at eMusic.
