Heaven Adores You is an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith. By threading the music of Elliott Smith through the dense, yet often isolating landscapes of the three major cities he lived in -- Portland, New York City, Los Angeles -- Heaven Adores You presents a visual journey and an earnest review of the singer's prolific songwriting and the impact it continues to have on fans, friends, and fellow musicians.Written by
Heaven Adores You
Some people want to know about the music. Some people want to know about the tragedy.I'm glad that this take on the Elliot Smith story will have some reach for the generations to come who discover him.
Sometimes, it's best to be remembered for what you gave to society with the talent that you had, and how it impacted thousands of people long after you were gone, than to focus on the drama, the tabloid fodder and the allegations of your personal life for strangers to obsess over.
I'm glad this film focused on the music. After all, what were you doing going to see an Elliot Smith film if it wasn't about the music in the first place?
