    Amazingly enough, I did not remember the end of this film! This is the third time I've watched it! I like it more each time I watch it. It does drag a bit at the end of the 2nd act, but the beautiful photography of San Francisco and the dark tale are worth the watch.

    I love that this film brought attention to these amazing musicians. It was great to hear them talking, not others talking about them. I'm sure they have many more stories that we didn't get to hear, but there is a book, so perhaps that covers more. It's only on Tubi till the end of September 2021, so jump on it! It's similar to The Wrecking Crew.

    What a waste of a great idea. If you decide to watch this, you can skip the first half-hour as all that happens is he's a photographer and something of a jerk. Finally, half-hour in he takes the photos that play in the plot. Then a bunch of nothing happens, then finally he develops the film and it's a great scene as he figures out just what he took pictures of. At 1 hour 34 minutes, we get to see The Yardbirds with Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck. 1/2 star for the "blow-up" scene, and one star for The Yardbirds.

    How can a movie I've watched for 30 years, every year, multiple times some years, how can a movie like that still cause me to tear up at the end? I know what happens, I've seen it before. That, my friends, is quality film making.
