5.0 out of 5 stars
Go JOEL!, Nov 28 2006
Joel Gion is the highlight-witty ,fun,cool,very kind-throughout the film,he is never seen fighting-He is there for Anton,keeping him in control,coming to his rescue & helping him out whenever he can.
..he seems the only stable one there,despite drugs & drink.You get the feeling he's holding it all together,albeit quietly & without praise & appreciation-i kinda feel sorry for him,he seems a really good,kind,genuine bloke,who is underappreciated- he deserves more acclaim!Sadly,he leaves the band.
After seeing it,i saw the 'Brian Jonestown Massacre' live...& JOEL was there,with his tamborine!!
Hes a very funny guy,& seems to have advanced his already impressive sideburns!Near the end,one of Anton's guitar strings broke,but JOEL noticed,gestured & called someone to help,& sorted out-what a guy,& all while playing the tamborine :D ...Apparently,he is now in a band called 'The Dilettantes',playing a more prominant role-im sure going to check them out,& i i think you should too!
A brilliant film-the Dandy Warhols actually seem pretty straight next to The Brian Jonestown Massacre!( i guess that shows something!)...Very entertaining & insightful,a must see definately!
