A Skin Too Few: The Days of Nick Drake


Time Out says

More popular now than he ever was in his brief life, Nick Drake is a giant of English song. His life and concise recorded output - three LPs of beautifully melancholy grace, where profound personal pain is imbued with a lyrical, redemptive impulse - is marked here by a heartfelt celebration. Using audio recordings of both Drake's father and mother (herself an evocative singer) and interviews with actress sister Gabrielle, it's an authoritative account of a singular talent. The film is notable for its instinctive understanding of the source of Drake's inspiration, the English landscape around his Midlands home.
