Critic Reviews for 40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

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.
