Summary In this shocking and sensitive exploratory journey through the thunderstorms of the mind of paranoid-schizophrenic Larry 'Wild Man' Fischer, viewers follow his discordant encounters in the music business. Institutionalized at the age of sixteen after attacking his mother with a knife, Fischer wandered the mean streets of LA singing his unique brand of songs for ten cents a pop to passersby. He was discovered by Frank Zappa, with whom he cut his first record album. Includes outtakes, and more.
Note Bonus features: deleted scenes; outtakes; Rudy Ray Moore interview; two commentaries with Larry Fischer and filmmakers.
