You Think You Really Know Me

Gary Wilson

The DVD is out for anyone who didn’t see the film in theaters.

“In 1977, a 24-year-old musician from Endicott, NY released a wonderful, odd album, combining elements of pop, proto new wave, jazz, avant-garde composition and electronic music, alternately sweet and angst ridden, about the women in his life and his fantasies…” – The New York Times

He made a masterpiece, and then he disappeared.

Championed by the likes of Beck and Matt Groening and obsessed over by record collectors, Gary Wilson’s 1977 album, YOU THINK YOU REALLY KNOW ME, is widely considered one of the most unique and personal musical statements of the 1970’s. Inspired by the 2002 reissue of the seminal album, director Michael Wolk set out to learn more about the man behind this esoteric record only to find that its creator had all but vanished shortly after its release, making for a story just as interesting and peculiar as the album for which he’s known. You Think You Really Know Me: The Gary Wilson Story is a look at the fascinating yet bittersweet life of a musician and artist well ahead of his time and ripe for rediscovery.
