Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction is a mesmerizing, impressionistic portrait of iconic actor Harry Dean Stanton (Alien, Repo Man, Paris, Texas), comprised of intimate moments, film clips from some of his 250 films and his own heart-breaking renditions of American folk songs. Stunningly photographed in color and black and white by Seamus McGarvey, the film explores the actor's enigmatic outlook on his life, his unexploited talents as a musician, and includes candid reminiscences by David Lynch, Wim Wenders, Sam Shepard, Kris Kristofferson and Debbie Harry. The fragile soul of an actor emerges from the poignant collage. Uncensored, unguarded moments and wry humor illuminate scenes filmed at locations like Stanton's home and his favorite local watering hole, Dan Tana's. Stanton discusses his friends Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson, how his family influenced his musical leanings, the women he almost wed, and his preference for film over theatre. In the end it is an unflinching, unabashed, romantic Valentine from one artist to another, from a galvanizing truth teller to a yarn-spinning survivor. Directed by Sophie Huber. In English.
