Sufjan Stevens makes a documentary abt reuniting with his deadbeat dad
I just saw this trailer for a new Sufjan Stevens documentary called Crooked River. Apparently, Sufjan Stevens has a 'childhood friend' named Kaleo La Belle who made a documentary abt Sufjan going back 2 visit his 'deadbeat dad' who has apparently inspired tons of dark feelings within Sufjy and his brother Marzuki. Maybe they h8 him because he named his kids "Sufjan" and "Marzuki."
The film, directed by childhood friend La Belle, stars Sufjan and his brother Marzuki as they take a trip from New York to Michigan to see their father who, at the time of filming in 2006, they haven’t seen in years.
I wonder what it is like 2 show up 2 see ur dad who u had broken ties with, and u have a video camera, and ur like "Nah dad it's cool. I'm just shooting an indie documentary abt emotions and feelings, so you have to understand that as an artist, I am making this 4 all of humanity, not just u + me."
Feel like Sufjan should thank his dad 4 bringing so much pain and darkness in2 his life so that Sufjan could be inspired to write tons of hit albums and mp3s. If meeting his dad helped him to write the album "The Age of Adz", then I kinda wish that he had never met him so he didn't make an electro album and still made vulnerable ass banjo songs.
Do u want to see the Sufjan documentary?
Do u think this filmmaker is 'milking' Sufjan's indie cred just to advance his own career?
Do u want to see this documentary, or do u think they just end up driving to some random shack in Northern Michigan?
Is this some sort of psychological thriller [via Catfish]?
Do u have a strained relationship with ur mother/father?
Does Sufjan look like an indie hunk in this documentary?
Based on the preview, do u think this is just a documentary abt Sufjan getting blazed and playing video games?
Do u think u could beat Sufjy at video games?
