They Got Him on the Run: Alien Boy Documents the Short Life of a Portland Musician


Saw this movie on Friday. Can't recommend it enough. Compelling story told quite well by some talented filmmakers. The way they show his fanzines and the court documents was very creative
@1 Agreed. Difficult to watch, but worth the effort, and I appreciate the director's tact in dealing with sensitive material. Incidentally, the same cinematographer shot Gus Van Sant's Mala Noche.
Loved the look of Mala Noche! I'm going to see Alien Boy tonight.
Did you really never even mention the filmmaker? Um, the amazing Brian Lindstrom, in case anyone was wondering. ; )
@4 I named him in the opening credit, which was removed (not by me). I also mentioned producer Jason Renaud who worked closely on the film.
