This strikingly shot concert film/tour documentary/psychedelic thingamajig follows enigmatic singer-songwriter Bill Callahan on his U.S. Apocalypse tour. A pioneer in the lo-fi movement, the film is built on impressionistic scenes of his life on the road combined with his cryptic musings.
Capturing life on the road, this documentary proves a low-key profile of prolific musician Bill Callahan: a key figure in the unfortunately-titled “freak folk” scene, which also included Drag City label-mates Joanna Newsom (Inherent Vice!) and Will “Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy” Oldham (Old Joy!).
