Saw the trailer. I don’t know how to feel. The actual road trip/interview took place in ’96.

I know Dave’s family isn’t happy about the movie. Dave had a weird relationship with his fame and success. He downplayed it at times, then admitted privately that of course he loved it, and he hated that he loved it.

I thought I would go see the movie, but now I’m thinking I won’t. There’s a weird fetishization of Dave as a tormented genius that doesn’t mesh with the Dave I knew. Then again, I was just a student, one of a faceless horde, so what do I know….
