Eleven years after his mysterious 2003 death, Heaven Adores You is a posthumous love letter and memorial to singer-songwriter (and frequent Capitol Theater performer) Elliott Smith. World-renowned and Oscarnominated despite never actively seeking the mainstream spotlight, Smith would tell anyone who asked that all he ever wanted to do was keep making music and writing songs. Director Nickolas Rossi has crafted a portrait of Smith’s entire all-toobrief life, from his childhood in Texas to his relocation to and adoption of Portland, OR, where he moved as a teen, to his last moves in the final five years of his life, first to New York City and finally to Los Angeles. Through interviews with over 30 people who knew, worked with, and loved Smith, a portrait emerges of a prodigiously talented but ultimately regular guy who was somehow able to channel his experiences and observations into sublime musical vignettes that continue to win fans today. For novices, it’s a good survey of Smith’s career, from his loud and fast days in Heatmiser to his solo albums on Olympia’s own Kill Rock Stars and major label Dreamworks; for fans, it’s a treasure trove, with approximately 20 pieces of previously unheard music, from some of Smith’s earliest teenage recordings to work left unfinished with his death.
