I loved this documentary. Levon Helm was a talented, soulful and complicated man. Didn't know a lot about Levon Helm before I watched it, but you get the sense from watching this film that he was a really great guy, a genuine person, who chose to live where he wanted to live, in upstate New York, and lived by his own rules. People saw that in him, and gravitated to him - that's the point of showing clips of Billy Bob Thornton enjoying hanging out with him. He smiled a lot, talked a lot, knew a lot about music and about life and stayed connected to it. That's the point of the movie, I think. To show that connection that he had. I'm glad I got a chance to meet Levon Helm in his later years through this documentary.
