I can respect an asshole a lot more when he’s at least aware he’s an asshole. David Crosby is one of those guys. This documentary is a very honest and personal look at Crosby’s life and he gets very candid about his relationships with his friends and his former band mates.
Cameron Crowe produces the movie, but also does all interviewing. Unfortunately, due to the state of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young the rest of the members of the band only speak in archived interviews, most of which are 20 years old. The film is not the most user friendly if you aren’t that knowledgeable of Crosby’s career, but it’s a very rewarding watch for a fan.
The last 15 minutes of this documentary are actually quite sad. I was surprised to see the direction it took. It doesn’t gloss over the tragedy around Crosby’s life.
