Having never seen an episode of Two and a Half Men or The Big Bang Theory, I can still say it's good they exist, if for no other reason than the proceeds from those TV series afforded Aronsohn the opportunity to direct this heartfelt music documentary.
A heartfelt documentary about a band that never made it big, or made it at all.
"40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie" transcends the trippy nostalgia to deliver a moving message about the healing power of reconciliation.
Beyond celebrating the music, 40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie has something to say about the compromises and reconciliations that are a part of aging, and it turns out to make for a stirring and healing reunion.
A compelling look at one of the greatest bands that remained undiscovered. This may be your introduction to Magic Music but I guarantee that 90 minutes later, you'll be singing along like you've known these songs your whole life.
Lee Aronsohn's personal story is to our benefit; set against the stunning Rocky Mts, he's preserved the band's legacy while giving a historical look at Boulder, CO in the 70s.
In many respects, 40 Years in the Making is a cliquey undertaking that leaves you mostly on the outside looking in, but after witnessing the joy of its participants at the end, there's little to begrudge.
Genial documentary is like your 50th reunion. No big drama, confrontation, revelation or insight. Men maturely make mutual decision to focus on good memories, pleasant music.
Aronsohn brings a great deal of production value to his doc. It's beautiful to watch.
The acoustic jam band music won't be to every taste, but these guys have the best collection of "Why we DIDN'T make it big" stories ever.
Told with personal interviews with all the band members of a 1970s Colorado band that didn't make it, along with clips of their tuneful music, archival videos, and stills, it is a captivating tale.
... shines a worthwhile spotlight while providing a quirky and endearing glimpse into music's power to create lasting relationships between performers and fans.
