Overview

Explore the life and works of influential rock and roll legend John Cale in this documentary that follows the founding member of The Velvert Underground from his early days as a promising classical musician through his groundbreaking collaborations with Lou Reed and later status as one of the most prolific producers in modern music. An avant-garde icon who continued to thrive even after The Velvet Underground's demise, Cale would go on to score such films as Andy Warhol's Something Wild and American Psycho in addition to producing albums for Iggy Pop, Squeeze, and Patti Smith.

An additional interview with longtime collaborator Reed as well as archival footage of the pair performing in The Velvet Underground offers a comprehensive view of the man who continues to inspire musicians seeking to break new ground and leave a lasting mark on the world of rock and roll. .
