Critic Reviews for Troubadours
Troubadours gets off on vague talk about community and a generous helping of tunes.
Watching the warmly nostalgic "Troubadours" is like going to a reunion of old friends. You're so happy to see them again that you are willing to forgive whatever lapses and flaws there are in the experience.
In the end, as another talking head points out, "the music always wins." And it did -- by a landslide.
For any music lover, this doc offers sheer bliss and a warm bath of nostalgia for the '70s era of L.A.-based singer-songwriters.
A key weakness of the documentary is that it doesn't do enough to refute the charges long leveled at the Laurel Canyon league by music critics.
