Shot from Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction, photo courtesy adoptfilms.net/harry
If you’re a fan of Harry Dean Stanton (and who in their right mind isn’t?) you will enjoy a documentary coming out in Los Angeles on September 13th called Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction directed by Sophie Huber. I was kindly invited by the publicity staff to a screening of this film last night in Hollywood, and got to see it at a really cool studio office building near Sunset. It was a fine film, shot partly in black and white, and features Mr. Stanton and his friends reminiscing about his remarkable life.
It also features Mr. Stanton singing. He has a fine, strong voice – who knew? He has a poet’s soul and admits to being a “womanizer” which has taken its toll on his love life. Yet with a face as soulful as his, it’s easy to forgive. He has a touch of a philosopher in him, too; and reflects on how “it’s all going to fade.”
Then after the film I wandered into the nearby Amoeba Music on Sunset – an amazing place, then drove back along Santa Monica Blvd. to Fairfax. I couldn’t resist running into Canters for some melt in your mouth chocolate chip rugula. Delicious! Traffic was blissfully light coming home, it was great. I love this city!
