by

the devil and daniel johnstonDaniel Johnston, manic-depressive genius singer/songwriter/artist is revealed in this portrait of madness, creativity and love.

Director Jeff Feuerzeig exquisitely depicts a perfect example of brilliance and madness going hand in hand with subject Daniel Johnston. As an artist suffering from manic depression with delusions of grandeur, Daniel Johnston’s wild fluctuations, numerous downward spirals, and periodic respites are exposed in this deeply moving documentary.

The Devil and Daniel Johnston artfully melds current footage, vintage performances, home movies, and dozens of recorded audiotapes from Daniel’s life. Testimony from supportive friends and a deeply committed family adds a rich layer to his personal history, but it is Daniel’s poetic songs interwoven through out the film, that tell their own passionate, haunting, and truly unforgettable story.
