This powerful portrait of the life and career of great American music icon Glen Campbell opens to the viewer the world of the singular talent who created hits like Rhinestone Cowboy, Wichita Lineman and Gentle on My Mind. Glen won the Grammy for Lifetime Achievement and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 2011, when Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, he joined forces with his family to fight the biggest battle of his life. Glen and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with the diagnosis - the first time a major American celebrity would share this experience with the world. The Campbell family then embarked on a short "Goodbye Tour," but the three-week engagement turned into an emotional and triumphant 151-show nationwide tour de force. This epic human drama about the undying bond between Glen and Kim, and their unwavering caring for each other, chronicles a story of love, resilience and the power of song.

I wanted to make just a brief comment on how much I enjoyed the documentary on Glen Campbell, but because of the ridiculous guidelines, I'm forced to write at least 10 lines....absurd! Takes too much of my time, please rewrite the guidelines, if you want more reviews.
I disagree with the first reviewer, Cherold. He's exceptionally picky! I enjoyed every minute of the movie. Obviously, Cherold hasn't had to deal with this issue personally. I have, so it's nice to see that it's getting political attention...even if it's politicians that I disagree with and thankfully are no longer in power.
I just watched the Documentary on CNN tonight. Thank you to Lilly, CNN, and the Campbell family for bringing it to our living rooms! What a sweet and touching story about Glen Campbell's struggles with Alzheimer's disease. It's nice to see the loving, compassionate care his family and friends are helping him to remember, even though he can't. It's amazing how his musical talent and wit endures while other memories are lost. It's very insightful to see how certain minds deal with the disease. At least he seems happy with a positive attitude. Glen is being Glen, just with a forgotten past. The music is so touching.
I think this is a must see for Glen's fans or anyone caring for loved ones with memory issues.
