  • 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.

    August 31, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A heartfelt documentary about a band that never made it big, or made it at all.

    August 24, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • "40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie" transcends the trippy nostalgia to deliver a moving message about the healing power of reconciliation.

    August 9, 2018 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    February 28, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.
