Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction is an impressionistic portrait of the iconic actor comprised of intimate moments, film clips from some of his 200 films and his own heart-breaking renditions of American folk songs. Lensed in color and black and white by Seamus McGarvey, the film explores the actor's enigmatic outlook on his life, his unexploited talents as a musician, and includes candid reminiscences by David Lynch, Wim Wenders, Sam Shepard, Kris Kristofferson and Deborah Harry.
Uncensored, unguarded moments and wry humor illuminate scenes filmed at locations like Stanton's home and his favorite local watering hole, Dan Tana's. Stanton discusses his friends Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, how his family influenced his musical leanings, the women he almost wed, and his preference for film over theatre. The poignant collage reveals the essence of a fascinatingly opaque and charismatic man.
