The story of cult musician Daniel Johnston is brought to the big screen
The story of cult musician Daniel Johnston is brought to the big screen this week with the release of the Jeff Feuerzeig directed ‘The Devil & Daniel Johnston’.
The documentary melds current footage, vintage performances, home movies, and dozens of recorded audiotapes from Johnston’s life to capture the singer/songwriter/artist through bouts of manic depression, dangerous delusions and…a stint in the circus.
Daniel Johnston has inspired the likes of Wayne Coyne, Beck and Tom Waits and this documentary offers a unique glimpse into the man, and his devils.
