Hey gang,

The (very positive) 'Jandek on Corwood' review from 'the Wire' is now on the website.


Anyone who's seen the film is encouraged to rate and/or review it on the IMDb at http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0381287/ .

Irwin Chusid has added his commentary to the site... text is below.

A strangely moving and well-produced chronicle of a legendary musical enigma, Jandek on Corwood captures the mystique of this reclusive human question mark without dispelling it. As with Joseph Lanza's terrific book 'Elevator Music,' the film, in my estimation, is more absorbing than the music itself. One fan observed that what Jandek creates isn't music -- it's an atmosphere. This film's shadowy, understated tone echoes its subject's spooky aura. 

Recommended, even if you don't know -- or if you loathe -- Jandek's recordings.
