I was a teenager in the 80s and I loved this movie. It had a great message and I loved the music. I now have the DVD and I have listened to it on and off for years. I was shocked at how powerful and inspirational it was. I didn't know how much this movie meant to so many people until I had it in my collection for over 10 years. The lyrics of the song "My God Is The Sun" are so inspiring and they have been so uplifting to me for years. I now have the movie on CD and I am listening to it every day and I am still feeling the power of the music. I just recently bought the soundtrack and I am so happy that I found it. It is a very inspirational movie, but at the same time, it is very dark and it is very sad. It shows the dark side of life and how it can make people turn to drugs or alcohol or just destroy their lives. It shows that there are good people in every community. There are always people who are trying to do the right thing and people who are trying to do the wrong thing. This movie is very inspirational to me and I want to buy the soundtrack. I have it on CD and I am listening to it everyday. I am also interested in purchasing the soundtrack on DVD. It is a very inspirational movie and I am very happy that I found it and I would love to have it on DVD.

I've seen this film twice now. I've seen it with a lot of different people and each person has had their own opinion of the film. My most popular opinion is that I think this film is very well done. I liked how they portrayed the other members of the band and the things that went on with the band. It was definitely a lot of fun to watch. This film is so unique and is worth seeing.

I have to say I'm pretty much a Robbie Robertson fan, so when I heard about this documentary I was interested. After watching this, I was very glad I did. This is a very entertaining and informative documentary. The documentary is divided into four parts, with the first and second being about the band's beginnings, and the third being about the band's second album. The fourth part is about the band's reunion, and it's also pretty interesting. The film also includes interviews with the band members, who give great insight into their past and how they were recruited into the band. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is a fan of the band or of music. It's definitely worth watching, and it's a must-see for any fan of rock music. I rate this film 9/10.

I've been a fan of Robbie Robertson since he was a kid. He has been one of my favorite musicians for many years. It's a shame that he died before this documentary was made. He was the biggest band in the world at the time of his death. I was completely stunned to hear that the documentary was going to be made. I couldn't believe it. It was so amazing to watch. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to know more about Robbie. This documentary is about Robbie Robertson's life and his music. It's one of the best documentaries ever made about a musician. I don't want to give anything away but it's just so amazing. It really gives you a different view on a musician. This documentary is just amazing. It really has to be seen to be believed. I give this documentary a 9 out of 10.

I am a die hard Band fan and I was very pleased with this documentary. I think that the fact that the documentary did not give the Band a bad name and the fact that Robbie Robertson is not only a very talented guitarist but a very talented man also made the film very enjoyable. The film is very informative and it tells you about the Band, the members and the history of the band. The documentary is very well done and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to learn more about the band.

This film is one of the most moving pieces of work I've ever seen. I have to say that I am a little bit biased because I am a former member of the band, The Band, and it is an amazing experience to watch the documentary. I can't believe the band is now in a very different place than when I left them. I was able to see that they are able to bounce back and do it again, as they did in "The Band: Live at the Garden". Robbie Robertson, who was one of the original members of The Band, has a very sad story to tell, and his personal journey is very interesting to watch. I think that the film is a very touching story, which is why I gave it a 9 out of 10. The story of Robbie's time with the band, and the subsequent struggles that he went through, was very interesting to see, and it is very powerful. I really recommend this film, and it will be a very special movie to see.

I really enjoyed this documentary. It was very informative and very funny. I was surprised that they used the same music that they used in the movie. They have a lot of great stories about Robbie Robertson's childhood and the early music he was involved in. I was also surprised that the director didn't use any music from the band. I also think that they didn't give enough attention to the band members. They didn't really get to know them well enough to really be able to get a good feel for their personalities. They were just a bunch of friends that happened to be in the same band. I think it's great that they don't give much attention to the band members because they don't know them well enough. I also think that they should have done more interviews with the band members because they really did a great job. I really hope that they do another one because I really liked this one. It was great to watch and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the band.

The Boyhood of Robbie Robertson is a wonderful film. It is very thought-provoking, and explores the psychology of childhood and adulthood. It does not shy away from certain events, but simply explains why they occurred, and how we react to them. The actor who plays Robbie Robertson is a very convincing child actor, and his performances make you feel for him. However, the film is not perfect. The pacing is very slow, and at times it seems as if the film is on auto-pilot. However, the film is worth watching. It is a very interesting look at the psychology of childhood and adolescence. You may think it is one of the worst documentaries ever made, but you will have to look beyond the surface, and take the film for what it is.

Well, I wasn't expecting much of this doc. My friends have always told me that I should just watch the band, not the movie. Well, the band is great. I love the band and their music. The documentary is definitely interesting. There are some good interviews and clips from the band and the music video's that I liked. But the music videos were pretty bad. I don't think the director was trying to make a great documentary. I guess he did a good job. The only thing I could think was that it was filmed in a very specific way and that the music video's were all taken out of context. Still, I'm not complaining. I do think the director did a good job and I really recommend it.

This is a documentary of Robbie Robertson and The Band (all four members of the band). It's narrated by Robbie himself and he is interviewed by someone who knows Robbie and The Band. As far as I know this is the first documentary of this type and it's an interesting one. The documentary covers the band's early years and the rise and fall of the band, with some clips from their early concerts. It's mostly fairly entertaining and I found it very informative and engaging. The documentary was fairly easy to follow and the interviewees were very engaging and informative. I also enjoyed the video clips of some of the songs from The Band's early albums. The documentary is fairly interesting and I thought it was well done. I would recommend it.

This is a film that is very well done and will give you a very good idea of what it was like to be a musician in the 50s and 60s. It is a story of a band that is formed in the 50s and is the inspiration for a lot of the music that was being played at the time. The film is told from the perspective of Robbie Robertson, a musician who is at the peak of his career. He was playing in a band called The Band and was already having problems with his wife. He also had a serious drug problem, and had been sent to jail. As the film progresses, we see the story of the band members and their problems. The story is told in a very interesting way. There are many interviews with the band members, and they talk about their life before they formed The Band, their life after they formed The Band, and the problems that they had. The film is very informative and gives you a great view of what it was like to be a musician in the 50s and 60s. This is a film that you will enjoy, and it is one that you will want to watch over and over again.

This movie is a very interesting look at the history of music, especially in the United States. The story of how the Beatles became a worldwide sensation is told very well, and the documentary is very informative. It is a very entertaining documentary, with a lot of music. Some of the music is pretty good, but some of it is not. The Beatles, the Stones, and Bob Dylan were not a huge band, but they were a huge band, and they were able to capture the public's imagination and create a worldwide sensation. The Beatles was the first band to create a song that everyone could sing and dance to. It was very popular, and people from all over the world were in awe of this band. The Beatles were a sensation. In the documentary, you see footage from the Beatles concerts, and you hear the music of the band, including some of the songs that were not released until a few years after the Beatles' death. The documentary is very informative. It is not a very long movie, but it is still worth watching.

This documentary was well made and I think it is an accurate portrayal of the band. It is interesting to see how the band members developed their own styles of music, and the different things that went into making that music. I also liked the fact that the documentary included footage of the band members playing in front of an audience, which was not in the film. I think the film would have been better if the footage was included in the film. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is a fan of the band, or someone who wants to learn more about the band. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is a fan of the band.

I saw this film on the first day of its release. I was blown away by it. It was a very well-done documentary on the life of Robbie Robertson, the former head of the now-defunct Rolling Stones. The film is a real eye-opener on the band, and the many people who worked on it, and the many people who were involved in the making of the film. It is a very entertaining documentary, and I was very glad that I saw it. It is a very interesting look at the history of the Rolling Stones and their music. It was very well done. It is definitely worth seeing.

With only about 45 minutes of running time, this film is definitely a must see. In the documentary, former country music group The Band talks about their history, starting from a humble start in the mid 80's, to where they are now, when they've reached their 50's. They were even nominated for an Oscar for this documentary, which is something to be proud of. They're very proud of their music, and they talk about the highs and lows of their career, and the big money they've made, which they have never felt before. I loved this documentary, and it's definitely a must see.

It's a shame this documentary did not get the attention it deserved, the music and performances are fantastic, as is the overall look of the era. For those of us that have been in that era and were lucky enough to get into the Rolling Stones and The Clash in their heyday, it is a huge nostalgia trip to see it all. It is a shame that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have not been featured, or even remembered, more by the fans. These guys are a part of the generation that became the early rockers of the 1970's and the music they played had a huge influence on all of the post-punk bands that followed, from the Ramones to Queen and so on. As a fan of the band, I can understand why the documentary makers would want to highlight them more than the others. The Rolling Stones were truly the greatest rock band of the 1960's, and their music is a huge part of that generation. But I think there is room for all of them, and maybe there will be a documentary on Bob Dylan in the near future.
