The documentary Who Is Harry Nilsson, and Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him? tells the story of an angelic-voiced upstart who grew up in a New York City slum and wound up a part of the upper crust of rock royalty. It’s the latest film by writer/director/co-producer John Scheinfeld, who made The U.S. vs. John Lennon which I also enjoyed.Details
