Marcus Jones's rating of the film Portrait of Jason

Glad I finally got to see this after hearing about it some time ago. Such an effective (and sometimes uncomfortable) look at an electric personality. Holliday spouts off his philosophies and talks about his life in a combination of joy, sadness, anger, and braggadocio. We see multiple sides of a person, a charming performer, a wounded drunk, all pieces that make up an interesting life worth watching.
