Nilsson Schmilsson

Series Site

"Possessed of a sweetly guileless voice and a knack for hummable melodies, offbeat pop genius Harry Nilsson eschewed the trappings of rock stardom to follow his own eccentric vision. Like The Beatles—who famously named Nilsson as their favorite American recording artist and whom he later befriended—this included detours into the world of film. On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Nilsson’s birth (in Brooklyn!), BAMcinématek looks back at the wild, wonderfully weird movie career of one of the greatest and most enigmatic singer-songwriters of the 1960s and 70s." —BAM
