Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction Directed by Sophie Huber
Shot beautifully by Seamus McGarvey, “Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction” is a compelling collage of a man who has been ubiquitous in American films for over half a century and is still with us, still working, still staring out at that horizon.

The spine of the film is a series of superb black-and-white interludes in which Stanton simply sings for the camera. His take on such classic Americana as “Blue Moon” and “Everybody’s Talkin’,” or “Danny Boy,” will overwhelm you, not so much because he sings so well, but because during these moments Stanton finally reveals himself in all his fragility. For any fan, this is mandatory.
