Huey McEvoy's rating of the film Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him?)

A perfunctory documentary that at least manages to answer its title, if not its subtitle. Arguably the biggest reason why Nilsson is not more widely regarded by the general public is that he - in channeling the aesthetic of a real estate agent - lacked a certain star quality in an image-obsessed world.
