Sufjan Stevens

Coming off the critical plaudits for his latest album, The Age of Adz, and his dance-like-an-Egyptian performance of "Too Much" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens has been drawing more mainstream attention. Now, there's a new trailer out for an unreleased documentary by a childhood friend of his. And, if it ever sees the light of distribution, it's sure to make his Q rating inch even higher.

Kaleo La Belle's 2006 documentary Crooked River is a fifty-two minute peek into the life of the talented multi-instrumentalist as he travels with his brother Marzuki to visit their long-estranged father in their native Michigan. There's no release date as of yet, but if all you ever end up watching is this trailer, at least you will have the memory of Sufjan killing it at a gas station Ms. Pac-Man machine. Which is almost as cool as "John Wayne Gacy, Jr." making an appearance on Nip/Tuck
