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!
