Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell (2008)

Matt Wolf


Arthur Russell's music is the very product of its time and space, NY in the 70-80's, and the very product of a country man meeting the most free and creative art scenes. You'd find all of this in his art, sweet melancholy, great tension, sensuality, sound researches (what he brings out of his cello is just amazing), and ultimately an incredible sense of groove in his proto-disco gems. This documentary tells the life of this great artist through the vision of people who lived around him, or worked with him, his parents, his ever loving boy-friend (a very moving character), the likes of Allen Ginsberg, Philip Glass, label owners, musicans, etc...
