Musical Misfit

Controversial, offensive, and downright angry, Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr. was a real force in his time. Better known as Jay Reatard, the notorious rock 'n' roll monster was known for aggressive and energetic performances that left audiences in awe. Even more provoking than his music were his uncanny viewpoints, which are displayed in the feature documentary Jay Reatard: Better Than Something. The film intertwines performances and interviews in an attempt to shed light on this misfit's life. Expect some chill factors in the film (not the bloody kind — or wait, maybe there will be blood; that usually was Jay Reatard's style) but the kind you feel when a now-gone rock legend talks about death on camera.
