    Southlander - Diary of a Desperate Musician (2000)

    Anybody seen this? It's on Amazon Prime... might watch it tonight.

    Amazon.com: Southlander - Diary of a Desperate Musician: Rory Cochrane, Rossie Harris, Beth Orton, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Richard Edson, Meghan Gallagher, Beck, Gregg Henry, Kurt Lilly, Pat Matthews (II), Ione Skye, Laura Prepon, Hank Williams III,

    "Rory Cochrane is great as the lead, plays it real cool as Chance, a down and out musician. When he acquires the '69 Moletron, a super rare synthesizer, it lands him the gig and the girl (Beth Orton). But the Moletron gets stolen, and Chance is determined to get it back.

    Chance and his seedy pal Ross Angeles chase the synth around LA through the buy/sell rag, The Southlander, and encounter all sorts of LA weirdos, including the unstable defunct funk star Motherchild (Lawrence Hilton Jacobs), Beck, who leads them to a bizarre technology bonfire pit, the menacing junkyard man (Hank Williams III) and a whole slew of others. The recently deceased and dearly departed Elliott Smith has a brief cameo, and contributed 2 previously unreleased songs for the film.

    Director Steve Hanft's specialty is in music video (he directed Beck's Loser video), and the production reflects his talent. The musical performances are brilliant and touching."
