Anybody else seen Paul Simon's 1980 film, One Trick Pony? If so, what do/did you think of it? For years, I resisted the temptation to see it (for the longest time, it was OOP). As a teenager channel surfing while bored, I made the mistake of seeing an Art Garfunkel film that turned out to be a little on the soft-core side. I'm a diehard S&G fan (Paul Simon is the reason I first became interested in music) but I didn't listen to their music for a year after that. Finally, I saw the film a few years ago. I have to say, I like it a lot. Granted, it does have a vanity project vibe to it (though maybe not as much as another Paul's Give My Regards To Broad Street, and don't even get me started on the infamous Sgt. Pepper's film) and Paul Simon isn't a very good actor, but as a fairly candid view of the darker side of the music industry (including the ennui of life on the road, the aftermath of being a one-hit wonder, the toll that such a career trajectory can take on one's personal life, and dealing with shady music biz types), it is quite well done. It's also worth the price of admission (to me, anyway) to see members of Stuff ("the infamous Richard Tee", Steve Gadd, and Eric Gale) as well as Tony Levin with brief speaking roles as Paul's backing band in the film. Also, Lou Reed as the schmaltzy music producer was priceless! "We're trying to make a ballsy record here and we don't want it to be lush." "I want to make a ballsy record too. River Deep Mountain High, eh? That was a ballsy record, wouldn't you say, with the strings on it?"
