Just great
19 October 2005 | by ebiros2See all my reviews

What makes this particular episode of Going Home series great is Robbie Robertson himself narrating almost 40 years of his music career with stories about him and the people who he came in contact with in those times in a colorful yet not taking himself serious way. What drives people like him and others to devote themselves so utterly to their craft is beyond an average person, but we are richer as a whole because of it. Watching this film really makes us appreciate what great artists can do to our lives and how much impact they have on the world around us.

Robertson of course was the leader of a band called "The Band" who Eric Clapton and others thought were the next step up from what they were doing in the '60s (That was mighty humble of Eric to come out and say that in this documentary). he is also of native American origin and was from the Six nations Indian tribe. At the beginning of the documentary he says "This isn't a documentary is it ? Our people don't even believe in things like this." on his having to recall his past events. His views are little bit that of an outsider looking in, and although he's a modern musician, how it affects his music is evident when you see this film. The film is interesting in this way not only from his great reservoir of music, but also from the way he views things around him. I'm just glad that this series decided to feature him. Having a record of such great musician no doubt will be a treasure for all of us in the future.
