Intimate and deserving...
7 February 2014 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

Although lacking certain dynamics; I found this film incredibly moving. It almost felt like a family history, contributions from Gene's lovely sister and brother and his two sons made this feel so intimate and up close. A very warm human story with some great contributions, you can almost wait for the tide to come in and go out while David Crosby finds the very most appropriate words to describe Gene's...soul. It is clear that Gene Clark had a profound effect on just about everyone he met. I also found it a valuable guide on how to grow old gracefully, or graciously - some fantastic insights and wisdom from Gene's former band mates, Chris Hillman deserves a special mention as the guy you would probably most wish to be like when in your mid-late sixties. I learn't a lot by watching this film and felt enriched by the experience. An extremely worthy tribute to a mercurial, searching, cosmic American dreamer.
