What Happened? submitted by jibkidder on July 30, 2022, 9:55am Liz Garbus is a great director of conventional documentaries, I was particularly taken with her "A Dangerous Son" about violent male children and our countries mental health crisis, which she did for HBO, or is on there. This doc is likewise a complex story about mental illness and is an asset in wrapping your head around this brilliant musician.
