A multilayered documentary that explores music and friendship, and in its own quiet way, the battle with fame.
If you hadn't guessed already, this is a movie about the deep-reaching allure of roots music. However, the very fact that it's about the roots music performed by these two unlikely collaborators makes it something more.
If you come to Grateful Dawg to hear a lot of wonderful music, you'll walk away satisfied.
It may not be much in the way of documentary filmmaking, but for fans of Garcia, Grisman or good old-fashioned American music, it's enough to be grateful for.
This one's for Deadheads and dawg-lovers only.
Though Grateful Dawg isn't a great documentary, it holds plenty of enjoyment for acoustic-music fans.
It's a laid-back musical documentary featuring the lead guitarist and singer for the Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia, and his friend, mandolin virtuoso, David Grisman.
[W]hen your subject is as interesting as this, and when the music your camera catches is this lively and toe-tapping, you don't exactly have to be a brilliant or innovative filmmaker.
To hear these guys perform Off To Sea Once More, Friend Of The Devil, Sitting Here In Limbo and several other tunes is worth the price of admission.
It's up to Grisman and his family and colleagues to speak for [Garcia]; unfortunately, their comments aren't very illuminating.
Starts to dissolve into a pleasant but overlong home movie.
A rough, unsophisticated but ultimately endearing look at another side of Jerry Garcia.
