Better Than Something
Dir. Alex Hammond and Ian Markiewicz (2011). A three-chord vérité blurt that's somehow totally rock & roll but also totally autumnal and sad and weirdly stirring, this doc portrait of the late Memphis garage-punk Jay Reatard is best seen with an audience. At this screening, that audience includes filmmakers Hammond and Markiewicz, who will do the q&a thing afterwards.
