Docs That Rock

Dreaming of Seeing Patti Smith doc

Perils of blogging/working: I’ve been trying to see the new Patti Smith doc for like six months. (A friend shot some film for it; it was shot over an 11 year period, which could make it like the Hoops Dreams of music docs; Patti ended up more or less collaborating with filmmaker/photographer Steve Sebring, which touches on all sorts of interesting director-subject issues unique to docs; and I’m a huge fan (obvs.)) But of course, even though I could have/should have gone at various festivals and film screenings, I keep missing it. But its playing now for two weeks at New Yorks’ Film Forum so I got to mention it now! Here it is! More to write on this film after I see it and before its limited theatrical release in September/October.
