Danielson: a family movie.

This was a really tragic music documentary. It's all about this family that tries to make indie folk/Christian music, but really... they just aren't any good. Eventually one of their collaborators, who happens to be Sufjan Stevens, totally overshadows them when he goes solo. I don't think that's what made it tragic though- I think it was 'Brother Danielson' (the lead singer) and his blind ambition. Behind his cheerful demeanor, he seems really sad and desperate.  

Really, I wish I liked the Danielsons music, but this movie just made me want to listen to Sufjan's old stuff.
