It tells the story beautifully, organically, and, by the end, tenderly, as it moves through six thematic "acts."
I'm glad I persisted. It begins as a standard, if meticulous rock doc... But the film seeks the key to the band's magic -- what elevated them from a group of musicians who toured endlessly into a US phenomenon inspiring cult-like devotion.
Using never-before-seen footage and interviews, Bar-Lev's warts-and-all approach fits a band that backed into fame in spite of itself.
These multivalent tales of the Dead are awe-inspiring and thought-provoking without fail.
You don't need a VR headset to watch Amir Bar-Lev's documentary about the Grateful Dead, because this four-hour movie is as immersive a wade into the waters of the Bay Area-germinated psychedelic band's history as 2D gets.
A bountiful trove of archival images and rare footage sketches their communal life offstage and the counterculture in which they played so formative a part. Crew members, family and fans share memories and lore.
Love 'em or hate 'em, when someone goes this deep, you can't help but feel absorbed.
Compelling whether you care about the band or not, the film provides a historical understanding of the Dead and of the fan base rather than just a case for their enjoyment.
Although the film is never sentimental, it would be difficult to watch it without warming to its subject.
Long Strange Trip takes a heady, tie-dyed, well-deserved place in the upper echelon of music documentaries.
A particularly well-chosen mix of some 60 songs by the band fits the history of this long-lived act, both in the the dawning and the ending of their time.
