The Darger movie played in Chicago a few months ago. I believe it was in
general (yet small) release already. This site has some info.

Good movie on great subject matter. There are some similarities of Darger
and Jandek (outsiders, seemingly high work ethic, large output, very deeply
personal expression...almost too personal for outsiders to view) but also
many differences (i.e. Darger had NO contact with his audience...in fact
there was no audience for his work until after his death).

I'm a big fan of Henry Darger's work, and am really looking forward to this
documentary. Is it on general release now in the US? (Or, if you're not in
the US... where are you? :))
