BETTER THAN SOMETHING: JAY REATARD
2011, 89 min, USA, Dir: Alex Hammond, Ian Markiewicz.

This intimate documentary portrait of the controversial and prolific garage rock icon Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr., better known to the world as Jay Reatard, shines a light on Jay's complicated punk-rock world in Memphis, Tennessee. Shot just months before his untimely death, BETTER THAN SOMETHING eloquently interweaves cinéma vérité, interviews, archival concert performances and scenes from an insightful and candid week spent with Jay, who reveals personal childhood stories and the struggles of life in Memphis.
