When Blind Melon frontman, Shannon Hoon, overdosed in 1995, just months after the release of the band’s second album, he left behind an extensive archive of video diaries filmed between 1990 to the day of his death. Hoon began recording his daily life on an Hi8 camcorder before the formation of Blind Melon, tracing their subsequent rise to fame as they graced Rolling Stone Magazine’s cover and took the stage at Woodstock ’94 with only one album to their name. While 90s nostalgia grows increasingly popular in the 21st century, the home movies manage to capture an authentic snapshot of the era. Thanks to Hoon’s meticulous self-documentation, ALL I CAN SAY is unique in its ability to present the late singer’s story as autobiography. Stating he’d love to work in the film industry, Hoon’s presence as a posthumous director is felt throughout as he decides what’s worth filming, drawing focus to his family, creative process, struggles with addiction, and the draining nature of fame in this bittersweet portrait of not just the musician, but also the man. — D.O.
