We might not be fully aware of it, but Harry Dean Stanton is part of the usual cast of cinephilia: Monte Hellman, Sam Peckinpah, John Huston, Ridley Scott, John Carpenter, Francis Ford Coppola, Wim Wenders and David Lynch are some of the directors that had him under their command. And, however, there’s a halo of mystery around his life and ideas: we don’t know much about him and we almost never heard him speak outside the fiction universe of his films. In that way, Sophie Huber’s documentary is revealing. Even with his reluctant attitude towards certain issues –and even towards the idea of a film about himself– Stanton seems to permit all kinds of approaches, as if he was an old lion in his natural habitat, whether he is being interviewed by his friend David Lynch or talking about his brief but intense relationship with Rebecca de Mornay –which ended when she chose a younger Tom Cruise in the set of Risky Business. And there’s also the music, another essential part of his life, which leads him to sing a few songs with a voice that is as unique as that face that made him unconsciously recognizable. LL
