The trailer for the documentary Paul Williams: Still Alive has gone online. As I mentioned in my review from SXSW, it doesn’t matter if you know of Paul Williams before you see the movie or not. For fans of the 70s celebrity who wrote “Rainbow Connection”, “We’ve Only Just Begun”, and other hit songs, it’s a wonderful way to reconnect with a beloved performer. For those who are meeting Williams for the first time, it’s great to see him through the eyes of director Stephen Kessler. The trailer does a good job of conveying how Kessler’s adoration of Williams is the heart of the movie, and how Williams is confused about being the subject of a documentary.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Paul Williams: Still Alive opens June 8th.
