A subtle documentary about an unique and brilliant musician, 13 February 2010
Author: edwardhblake from United States

If you're a fan of Bill Withers, you'll truly appreciate this in depth and personal documentary. It focuses primarily on his life and achievements at the age of 70, but it also revisits his past and how events and people shaped him and who he is today. Withers is amazingly funny and wise - full of life lessons that shouldn't be missed.

If I had a complaint about the documentary (or why I wouldn't give it a 10/10) I would say that some of the material ventures into overly sentimental themes but that's not easy to avoid.

After seeing it, I immediately began rooting through my music collection to find my Bill Withers material.
