It's great, though, that there's a document dedicated to the 20 plus years of complete mystery.  I wonder if Jandek himself saw the film as a summation of that aspect of his career, and helped lead to his playing out.

Also, this struck me the other day and I thought I'd share.  I've been reading Bob Dylan's autobiography and it hit me that Dylan, probably one of the most famous people of all time, has spent forty years in the spotlight and even written an offical autobiography, yet is still the ultimate enigma, and probably more completely unknowable than even Jandek, who shunned those public trappings.  People on this board probably aren't huge Dylan fans, but I thought it was kind of interesting.
