"An excellent documentary film... about artistic integrity in the face of poverty, and of commitment to a musical vision." The Guardian
"...an extraordinary portrait of an extraordinary musician." Sight & Sound
"If people don't like it now, they will." Albert Ayler
A deeply moving documentary portrait of the experimental 1960s jazz saxophonist, with haunting use of his music and voice combined with startling unseen footage and interviews with those who knew and loved him. Essential viewing for his ardent fans and an accessible, fascinating primer for newcomers to his work and too-short life.
