For a brief trip into hell – check out this amazing film. At first Daniel is interesting, endearing and incredibly talented. And eerie. He tapes hours and hours of every thought he has. He illustrates continuosly – creating a barter system of his very own. He produces hundreds of songs. But then the descent. Daniel is bipolar and it will take years to determine this. He thrives and yet he is seemingly dying. Each amazing high point of fame brings him within hours of his own death and destruction. Fascinating. Painful. Tortured. Daniel is a genius. I won’t tell you more. Go see it. And then be grateful for your sanity.
Directed by Jeff Feuerzeig. Produced by Henry Rosenthal. Opens nationwide tonite.
