Be Here to Love Me: A Film About Townes Van Zandt

This top-notch documentary probes into the life (and ultimate death) of musical cult figure Townes Van Zandt. The Texas-born singer-songwriter never reached any sort of widespread audience in his lifetime, but he is roundly admired by the likes of Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Steve Earl, Jerry Jeff Walker and Emmylou Harris (all of whom are interviewed here). Director Margaret Brown has assembled a compassionate, scrapbook-like ode to a talented but troubled musician. Even nonfans will walk away enlightened and humming. 99 minutes
