A skilfully created masterpiece
21 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

If you're a John Mayer fan, you're pretty lucky if you enjoy hearing insightful interviews, or watching live footage of his performances online. He must be one of the most filmed, well-documented celebrities; there's no shortage of video from any time point in his career. Each clip forms part of a vast mosaic of miniature stories that collectively define the various periods of his career. And this is the documentary that realises the definition, so it's hardly surprising its maker has received the deserved recognition he has for creating it.

Eastwood Allen has skilfully and painstakingly assembled the best footage, the most relevant parts of it - and told a complex, creative story portraying one of the great geniuses making music today. It's edited to perfection, with masterful transitions and shots that leave no detail uncared for. If you love a good music documentary, you would be quite justified in thinking this was something John had commissioned to be filmed, himself. It is really that good.

I don't re-watch many things, but I've seen this documentary countless times. It never fails to inspire and uplift with the message that Eastwood has sought to convey to his audience. I can't wait for this man's next film! John - you're lucky to have received such a tribute, and very deserving, too.
