Come Feel Me Tremble

Come Feel Me Tremble is an underrated movie about Paul Westerberg, released in 2003 to coincide with his album of the same name. It's sloppily produced, like most things Westerberg, but has some surprisingly revelatory moments about the usually reclusive songwriter, who appears to be alone in almost every shot, even when playing to his fans. Watch him talk about his WWII vet father, play Word Association with Replacements albums and fend off scores of audience requests (a dozen or so are for "Free Bird.") Best of all, hear him play solo guitar versions of scattered gems from his amazing career.
