I recently watched “The Devil and Daniel Johnston” which is a documentary about Daniel’s life. As a documentary it goes to the very soul of a life. I’ve never watched anything so intimate and open before. I had mixed feelings by the end as you get an insight into his personal struggle with mental illness. Throughout I felt overwhelmed and saddened but I also laughed at his humour and genius. I’ve posted the trailer below along with a more recent interview in which Daniel talks about the film and it’s affect upon him.
