You're Gonna Miss Me: A Film About Roky Erickson Reviews:

This is an wonderful - and incredibly fu**ed up! - story, beautifully told. I had not heard of Roky Erickson before I saw this film. A mate invited me to a screening without much warning so I had no expectations. What I discovered was a movie that's a tripped out ballad of family dysfunction on a lvl that is heartbreaking to bear. But it can be really funny too. It's tragic, comic, and mind blowing all at once - and in a weirdly quiet way. It's the type of topics matter that should be handled in a method that's glib and wonky. But the filmmakers chose a various route, one that's elegant and thoughtful – be it in the downright hypnotic compositions of the 16mm cinematography (how did they swing that in a documentary?) or the quiet style of the editing (the type that gives you zone to think, to feel) - and it leaves a lasting impression. I saw it over a week ago and hold thinking about these wonderful people. "You're Gonna Miss Me" is troubling, fascinating, captivating and hysterically funny. Do whatever you need to do to see this film; it is a real and singular find.


This documentary says the storyline of Roky Erickson, formally the lead singer of 60s' psychedelic rock band "13th Floor Elevators" and the 70s' "Roky Erickson and the Aliens". It quickly establishes a modern day, shambling, overweight Roky. He actually stays in a three room apartment, listening to many ear-splitting sounds at once - a TV testing cartoons, a radio testing feedback, an electronic organ testing a use tune, and more. Roky settles into this, pulls down his shades and falls asleep. His mother says: "It's only when I turn them off that he wakes up". YOU'RE GONNA MISS ME explores what's going on in Erickson's head that he so desperately needs to silence.Erickson did a lot of drugs in the 60s'... before and after 13th Floor Elevators' "You're Gonna Miss Me" was a large hit. LSD, straight acid, weed, the usual suspects. He became known to the local police, and was eventually arrested for having a "matchbox sized" amount of cannabis. His lawyer, wanting to hold Erickson out of prison, pleaded insanity... tentatively calling him schizophrenic. Not a nice move. Erickson was shifted off to the nearby insane asylum... one that recently had severe riots. In one incident, the inmates strapped one of the doctors to a table and told "Let's shock him 'til he s***s" in an attempt to recreate what they'd had to endure. As Erickson arrives, several doctors wish to practice there and the inmates are the craziest of the crazy. Erickson is there for almost five years, writing music, getting Etc treatments, and eventually forming a band with kid molesters, incestual rapists, and family killers. Two of the band were all three of those.Erickson shuts off his brain to survive, but is eventually freed after a lawyer wonders why a guy locked up for marijuana and schizophrenia has been banged up with violent criminals. But, of course, the Roky that is released is even more messed up. He thinks he's a zone alien, with evil voices constantly talking to him. In an attempt to support him, one mate gets him to sign a document ("with a gold seal to create it look serious") where he professes to the globe that he's an alien. He figures this is the only method the voices will stop pestering him. The voices need to agree Roky is one of their own.What's fascinating about YOU'RE GONNA MISS ME is that it continues from there. All that exposition I've just given is only a tiny part of the story. Everything should have easy been presented as other tale of a 60s' musician driven loopy by too many drugs. But it isn't. Erickson is cared for by his slightly batty mother, who's the only person he's willing to see. She doesn't wish him taking schizophrenic meds... while one of his brothers - a renowned tuba user - wants to "save" Roky.The documentary doesn't offer any concrete answers and it's refreshing for that. The mother is blighted by religion and borderline insanity, while Erickson's brother is in serious therapy and at one scene weeps in the arms of his therapist. Yet at different stages both are sympathetic. Even Roky is sometimes an irritation as well as being someone you feel desperately sorry for. It was also nice to see a documentary without a voice-over, the power of which is evident when Roky's father leaves the brother's house for the walk home... just see where he ends up, folks.YOU'RE GONNA MISS ME blows some of the several remaining myths about the joys of excessive drug use, but also explodes myths on therapy and recovery. It reminded me of CRUMB in that the stories of the folks around the protagonist are as interesting - if not more so - than the focus of the documentary. Although a several folks I had heard of (the Mad Samoans' Mike and Butthole Surfers' Gibby) turn up in the documentary, the full storyline of Erickson had fully passed me by. It was certainly a lucky accident to come across YOU'RE GONNA MISS ME. Unlike some of the drug literature I've read, I'm very glad I checked this out. It's insightful, and highly recommended. And, hell, the final stage even brings a nice ol' tear to the eye.


Was really wowed by this film. There are moments of utter brilliance, both comedic and dramatic. I laughed throughout the whole film, but the entire thing was suffused with a tragic tenderness that squeezed my heart. Rocky as a young musician is irresistible--charming, handsome, talented, charismatic. Rocky as an aging, mentally ill, reclusive former rocker is equally irresistible. The movie takes us on an wonderful adventure from one to the another and stands out because in Rocky's world, there doesn't seem to be one bedrock of sanity. The filmmaker creates a globe fully oblivious and impervious to the one we live in; one we see but can't really trust exists. The melody is phenomenal. Truly one of America's untold rock legends.
