Because You d Louie Bluie
Musical Documentary 19851h 15mOn: Rent or Buy Only Country: America

Crumb director Terry Zwigoff’s first film is a true treat: a documentary about the obscure country-blues musician and idiosyncratic visual artist Howard “Louie Bluie” Armstrong, member of the last known black string band in America. As beguiling a raconteur as he is a performer, Louie makes for a wildly entertaining movie subject, and Zwigoff honors him with an unsentimental but endlessly affectionate tribute. Full of infectious music and comedy, Louie Bluie is a humane evocation of the kind of pop-cultural marginalia that Zwigoff would continue to excavate in the coming years.Louie Bluie featuring Howard Armstrong and Ted Bogan is available for rent or purchase on iTunes, and available for rent or purchase on Prime Video. It's a documentary and musical movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 7.6 (767 votes) and was very well received by critics.
