Docs That Rock

Will Write Songs for Charity


Character driven docs (aka Michael Moore, Morgan Spurlock) have tended to dominate the doc box office, usually because they’re amazingly funny. But hundreds of these docs must get produced a year and fall flat if the magic doesn’t last for 90 minutes. I caught notice that this doc that won awards at a few smaller festivals and I’m reaching out to the filmmakers to screen a copy. It’s about a group of pals who try to convince a group of famous artists like Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Rod Stewart and others to record songs written by their buddy, an unknown singer-songwriter. If this has some good pathos with a striving, unfulfilled buddy and some great exchanges with the artists, it could be feature worthy. Or could it be another road movie to nowhere? I’m intrigued. See what you think of the clip below. LA readers can check this out a screening today at 3:30 PM at the House of Blues in Hollywood and at 6:30 PM, August 1st, at the Regency Theater in West Hollywood.
