He made a masterpiece, and then he disappeared...Championed by the likes of Beck and Matt Groening and obsessed over by record collectors everywhere, Gary Wilson's album, You Think You Really Know Me, is widely considered one of the most unique and personal musical statements of the 1970s. Inspired by its 2002 reissue, 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 original 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.
