Better Than Something is a documentary by Alex Hammond and Ian Markiewicz that delves into the life and times of Memphis garage-punk icon Jay Reatard, filmed mostly over the several months before his cocaine-induced death in January 2010. The film offers an intimate look at the man behind the image, unveiling a sad, funny, snarky, pissy, kind man from the rock ā€™nā€™ roll capital of the world doing the only thing that he knew how to do. The film is as much a cautionary tale about pushing yourself too hard as it is a documentary about an artist that was truly one of a kind. (Chad Radford)
