This mesmerizing, impressionistic portrait of an iconic actor is comprised of intimate moments, film clips from some of his 250 films, and his own heart-breaking renditions of American folk songs.

Stunningly lensed in both color and black and white by Seamus McGarvey, Harry Dean Stanton explores the actor's enigmatic outlook on life and his unexploited talents as a musician, while including candid reminiscences from David Lynch, Wim Wenders, Sam Shepard, Kris Kristofferson and Debbie Harry.

The fragile soul of an actor emerges from the poignant collage. Uncensored and unguarded moments of wry humor mark scenes filmed in places 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 theater.  In the end, Harry Dean Stanton is an unflinching, unabashed, romantic valentine from one artist to another, from one galvanizing truth teller to another yarn-spinning survivor.
