The Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt is an indie cult figure: His chameleonic tendencies as a songwriter belie a post-ironic awareness of the song as an artistic form. Kerthy Fix and Gail O'Hara's beautifully filmed and edited documentary profile goes behind the scenes, exploring the sometimes-controversial curmudgeon's process and musical relationships. Starts Fri., Jan. 21, through Tue., Jan. 25. Melwood
