Director Gorman Bechard believes in rock 'n' roll; he's been proving it on screen since his fan-centric Replacements documentary Color Me Obsessed. Follow-ups on the Archers of Loaf and Husker Du's Grant Hart (Every Everything) respectively captured the power of live performance and the intricacies of a creative mind. Bechard's latest does both, while tackling a complicated question: "Who is Lydia Loveless?"
Rather than taking a reverent look back at an established artist, Bechard's new film serves as an introduction of sorts to a musical life in progress, diving deep into the evolving career of the gloriously talented Loveless and the bandmates alongside her.
Lydia and company may be on a familiar and oft-repeated journey - from tour van to rock club to recording studio and repeat - but theirs is a singular vision thanks to the genuine, honest and charismatic woman at the wheel.
