A Documentary Follows Drummer and Singer Levon Helm Near the End of His Life
The laid-back oak-aged voice of Levon Helm telling stories about catching catfish, smoking boutique weed or talking shit about the music business makes for an entertaining movie. His toothy grin, manic cackle and weathered face add to the show. That, along with a few painful clips of Helms visiting the doctor, and ample footage of him singing and playing, makes up the bulk of Ain't In It For My Health, a documentary about Helm, which opens at Real Art Ways later this month.
