Benjamin Smoke (aka Robert Dickerson), the gay, cross-dressing, gutter-mouthed southern Oscar Wilde who fronted the wild, eclectic Atlanta band Smoke, was HIV-positive and died in January 1999, not long after this 2000 documentary was shot. Filmmakers Jem Cohen (who also directed the 1998 Fugazi documentary Instrument) and Peter Sillen capture his corrosive charisma, his debilitating insecurities, and his gargantuan lust for life.
