Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction

Comprised of film clips, smoking, extended silences, and several musical numbers, the career of character actor Harry Dead Stanton is sort of outlined, but I can't say I got a lot of information out of it. David Lynch drops by to ask Harry Dean a few questions, and I can't help but wonder what a cocktail party with those two would be like. I don't think a lot of conversation would take place, the bar would be emptied, and the house would be littered with severed ears crawling with ants, cigarette butts, and Molly Ringwald. Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction is well shot, engrossing, and enigmatic, however, viewers wanting facts and figures should look elsewhere.
