Rick Fuller's video documentary about charismatic folk-rocker Tim Buckley collects 14 live performances shot between 1967, when he made his national TV debut on The Monkees, and 1975, when he died of a drug overdose at 28. The format is rudimentary but ideal for appreciating the music: songs are presented as completely as possible, without added voice-over, and the three talking heads who set them up (songwriting collaborator Larry Beckett, guitar sideman Lee Underwood, and biographer David Browne) are informed and insightful. The song selection gives equal weight to Buckley's early years as a soulful troubadour and his more demanding experiments in jazz; like most listeners, I'm partial to the former, but the latter serve to illustrate Buckley's gigantic appetite for creative discovery. 109 min.
