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.
