John Walter’s brilliant documentary, reviewed for DCist.
UPDATE 6/26/08: I got a nice e-mail about the review from Theatre of War director/editor John Walter, who reports that he is shopping the film around for a distributor. Best of luck to you, John! It’s a great documentary, and it deserves as wide a release as it can get.
John also sent this cool one-sheet image:

INT. – 1999 TOYOTA COROLLA – DAY
The two young loves roll merrily along, en route to meet his parents to celebrate his birthday. On the stereo is “Guitar,” the stratospherically awesome first single from Prince’s decent-but-unexceptional new album, Planet Earth.
PRINCE: I love you, Baby. But not like I love my guitar! (Grabs guitar. Shreds, Edge-style.)
MISS CROOKS: Are you trying to tell me something?
ME: I don’t own a guitar.
MISS CROOKS: That just makes it worse.
