British documentary about Norwegian artist St Thomas, for whom the distinction between life, art, reality and imagination were increasingly unclear. His music, a blend of Neil Young’s sensitivity and Daniel Johnston’s lack of self censorship, mirrored his life, candid, chaotic and spontaneous. An intimate portrait of a man who spent much of his life fighting a hard battle with himself.
