Check Out the Paul Williams Still Alive Music Video

Paul Williams Still AliveOne of the most entertaining documentaries of 2012 is Paul Williams Still Alive which had its US premiere at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival and opened theatrically in June. Now with awards season in full swing, one of the songs from the documentary – “Still Alive,” written and performed by Paul Williams – has been receiving a lot of attention. And with that attention comes this new music video of Williams performing the catchy song.
 
The Plot:
 
If you were around in the 1970s, and even if you weren’t, you probably know Paul Williams. He wrote classic songs like “We’ve Only Just Begun,” “Evergreen” and “The Rainbow Connection.” He starred in Smokey and The Bandit and on Johnny Carson’s couch. And then, he disappeared.
 
Quite by accident, lifelong fan and director Stephen Kessler learned that Paul Williams was still with us. But when Kessler sets out to make a documentary, Williams isn’s interested at all. With Kessler never giving up and Williams always trying to get away from the camera, the results are a documentary that is more like a buddy comedy than a “whatever happened to”–both funny and moving.
