(8 Aug) All I Want (2005, George Scott) 71
[ I adore Rufus Wainwright, and it’s a real treat to see him in concert footage or home movies and hear him and others (including his mother Kate and sister Martha, plus celebrity fans such as Elton John and the Scissor Sisters) talk about his music and his life: dreaming of playing the title role in Annie as a boy, going to bars and having sex with men in the Montreal Gay Village at 14, recording demos and trying to get gigs in New York at 20, being signed by a major label and losing himself into crystal meth and debauchery, and finally getting clean and creating his masterpiece, the WANT albums. A fascinating, moving journey, and often funny, too. ]
