Annnnnnnd…now, I’m listening to Elliott Smith.
As you do.
Lucky Three - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Lucky Three or Lucky Three: an Elliott Smith Portrait is an 11-minute short film featuring Elliott Smith playing acoustic songs. Directed by Jem Cohen, the film was recorded October 17-20, 1996 in Portland, Oregon, and released in 1997. It is available on Kill Rock Stars’ Video Fanzine #1 release (1999, out of print). In an MTV indie outing interview, Smith described it as “a cross between a video and a documentary, but actually being neither of the two.”
