Movie Review

Louie Bluie dir. Terry Zwigoff — 7.9

An offshoot of the Crumb documentary, this is a fascinating portrait of artist and musician Howard Armstrong. An accomplished fiddle and mandolin player and veteran of postwar jug bands and busking, Armstrong was also an amazing artist who drew incredibly complex "journals" mixing words and art and calligraphy with astonishing precision. His "Whorehouse Bible" is hilarious, a book I would truly love to own. Armstrong, in his 70's when this was shot, is a raconteur of the highest order. There are also many great musical numbers including his friend Yank Rachel and Ted Bogan.
