An infectiously fond look at a mellow moment in rock history.
Watching the warmly nostalgic "Troubadours" is like going to a reunion of old friends. You're so happy to see them again that you are willing to forgive whatever lapses and flaws there are in the experience.
In the end, as another talking head points out, "the music always wins." And it did -- by a landslide.
The film is entertaining but hardly penetrating.
A key weakness of the documentary is that it doesn't do enough to refute the charges long leveled at the Laurel Canyon league by music critics.
Fans of James Taylor and Carole King rejoice
It's woeful as a documentary history -- a real missed opportunity.
Troubadours gets off on vague talk about community and a generous helping of tunes.
Troubadours is an amiable endeavor, if something of a puff piece.
For any music lover, this doc offers sheer bliss and a warm bath of nostalgia for the '70s era of L.A.-based singer-songwriters.
Compelled me to dig out my old Carol King and Joni Mitchell albums. Required viewing for fans of the 70's singer/songwriter era.
