Every Everything: The Music, Life & Times Of Grant Hart

Every Everything: The Music, Life & Times Of Grant Hart

director: Gorman Bechard

What Were We Thinking Films/MVD Visual

Every Everything marks director Gorman Bechard’s third foray into the realm of the music documentary, and as with his first two such films – one covering The Replacements and the other featuring Archers Of Loaf – this release is not to be missed. True to its title, the film covers the exceptionally full life of artist extraordinaire Grant Hart from boyhood to today, delving deeply into the musical and personal aspects of his time in the incomparable Hüsker Dü as well as his time with the magnificent and underrated Nova Mob, the progression of his solo career, and his talents in both poetry and collage. Hart is a fascinating subject, and he opens himself up fully to the camera in ways that are, at times, almost painful to witness. How many rock ‘n’ roll documentaries ultimately reveal their subjects to be human – truly human – rather than shadowy remnants of once-ordinary men or women? None that I can think of. Hart displays fragility and strength, genius and eccentricity, humility and vanity, and all manner of light and dark in the course of Every Everything, which plays like a one-shot 90-minute conversation with an old friend that you know really well yet don’t truly know at all… until the credits roll, when you’re left feeling a bit like you just had an out-of-body experience that allowed you to literally poke around in the darkest recesses of someone else’s mind until you simply couldn’t take it anymore. The Impaler’s verdict? Every Everything is the most consistently captivating and entertaining music documentary I’ve ever seen, and it should not be missed. The Impaler @impalerspeaks
