I hate to admit I never heard of Bobby Bare Jr (or Sr), but I'm thrilled about his music now! Powerful documentary about a talented man following his dreams, but always coming out short. Amazing songs and performances... should he ever some to town, I'd see him in a heartbeat!

This is certainly a must-see for any Bobby Bare Jr. fan, but the story itself transcends the typical music documentary trope. Sans slickness, Dont Follow Me (I'm Lost) is refreshingly genuine, not unlike Bare Jr. himself. The doc tells an honest story about the life of a touring musician. Be it the unfairness of unlauded genius, the cringe-worthy money moments or the palpable exhaustion/elation of life on the road, this flick totally gets it right. Watch it. And then go buy some Bobby Bare Jr. music.

A semi-interesting documentary about a world-weary musician trying to make it on his own. It's pretty fascinating to see the guts and sinew of the small time show circuit (there's absolutely no glamour, as you can probably imagine). Half of the time you want to shake Bobby Bare, Jr. and be like "Bro, Jeff Tweedy already exists; you need to change your style" but I paid too much for my television to do that.
