Jerry Jeff Walker's journey as a troubadour has led him many places. In the sixties, he was a street singer. In the seventies, he led a musical movement. In the eighties, he walked away from the recording industry.
Read what film critic and DIFF jurist, Phillip Wuntch, has to say:
"Tourville's admiring yet even-handed perspective allows room for Walker's human flaws, his moodiness and his propensity for excess, whether consuming liquor or carelessly spending his hard-earned fortune. But what emerges most strongly is a portrait of an artist and performer of unshakable integrity, as witnessed by his turbulent relationship with a recording industry inevitably more obsessed with the bottom line than with musical artistry. On a personal basis, Walker emerges as a husband in love with and somewhat in awe of his level-headed wife. Hey, he even loves his kids and dogs. And, even if you don't love Jerry Jeff Walker before you see OK Buckaroos, you'll love the guy after seeing this well-researched, energetic documentary."
