Movie Info

Blues and folk singer Karen Dalton was a prominent figure in 1960s New York. Idolized by Bob Dylan and Nick Cave, Karen discarded the traditional trappings of success and led an unconventional life until her early death. Since most images of Karen have been lost or destroyed, the documentary uses Karen's dulcet melodies and interviews with loved ones to build a rich portrait of this singular woman and her hauntingly beautiful voice.

Critic Reviews for Karen Dalton: In My Own Time

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

"Karen Dalton: In Her Own Time" does what it can with its paucity of material, stretching out the few photos and fewer live performances into a palimpsest, traces of a life lived creatively if not well.

It's as much a meditation on class and gender politics as it is a trip down memory lane.

Karen Dalton: In My Own Time masterfully brings a forgotten folk singer into the spotlight.

This heartfelt portrait, which brings the artist tantalizingly close, will certainly bring greater renown to Dalton. But she remains, stubbornly, unknowable.

An excellent documentary directed by Richard Peete and Robert Yapkowitz.
