Review by Carnahan (posted on 31-May-2005)

This film follows the last days of musician Gram Parsons, or rather, the last days of his corpse. If you're unfamiliar with the story, a faithful roadie stole Parsons corpse and took it to Joshua Tree National Park where he cremated the corpse in the desert. This was according to Gram's last wishes, but against the wishes of his stepfather, who wanted the corpse so he could have legal standing to claim part of Gram's inheritance. The film roughly follows this story, emphasis on roughly. The story has been altered so much from the facts at hand, it's almost a completely new tale. The film is filled with useless characters, false motives, cheap jokes, and bad writing. As a fan of Gram's music, I was offended that they would trivialize his legacy with such a poor film. Parson fan or not, I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone.
