DOC: Be Here to Love Me – A Film About Townes Van Zandt

“There was one point when I realized, man, I can really do this. But it takes blowing everything off. It takes blowing your family off, money, security, happiness, friends… Blow it off, get a guitar, and go.” ~ Townes Van Zandt

Margaret Brown’s 2005 documentary on the incomparable Townes Van Zandt. At once myth-making and humanizing, Be Here to Love Me is a brilliant portrait of a real-life troubadour, as creative as he was destructive. “There ain’t no dark til something shines.”
