Buck 65: The Lost Tapes

Directed by Christopher Mills (Warner)

by

MuchMusic’s CRTC application to reduce the number of videos the station plays is a giant shrug. YouTube may have killed the video stars, but musicians like Rich Terfry, celebrating 20-odd years in music, will keep the artform alive. Loosely inspired by stolen live tapes, the hour-long video is part concert documentary (from his Situation tour), part performance art, comedy, memoir and art piece, with gorgeously ragged animated illustrations from Halifax’s Nicole Aline Legault. But above all, Terfry proves that artists with a strong creative vision can achieve success on their own terms (and that he looks great dressed as a woman).
