Once again, I'm Jo-Jo not Ernie - he's my husband and I can't erase his name off this site no matter how hard I try. Anyway, for a fairly recent convert to Lou Reed like myself, this was a really enjoyable film. He does seem to be an interesting person - definitely from the "Grumpy Old Man School Of Sexiness" (like my husband). Like several of you have mentioned, his marriage/homosexuality was glossed over; in fact his background in general was barely mentioned and it was one aspect of the film that I found a little disappointing. I would like to have heard about his family, relationships etc, but the insight into his career was pretty good.
My favourite part was definitely the closing credits - "Perfect Day" is one of Lou's prettiest songs (although he doesn't seem to be much associated with "pretty" songs) and everyone looked adorable. Patti Smith giggling is one of the sexiest things I have ever seen! I would love to see an expanded version of this with more info.
