Demme, who passed away in April 2017, began his career, like many of his contemporaries, under the guidance of legendary low-budget producer Roger Corman before becoming one of Hollywood’s greatest humanists. The trademarks of Demme’s style—a generous engagement with the humanity of his characters, extensive use of penetrating close-ups, and an innate understanding of music’s cinematic qualities—are all captured in this short but powerful series.
