Description
This relentlessly entertaining music doc on the history and legacy of the Grateful Dead is an absolute must-see for the Deadheads among us, of course, but it will also captivate anyone interested in rock music, American history, or brilliant filmmaking. Every minute counts in Amir Bar-Lev’s sprawling, exhilarating, richly detailed epic that traces the Dead from the band’s humble beginnings, to the group’s ascent to fame, to the drastically changed lives of each member in the wake of their success. Even for those who have rarely uttered the name “Jerry Garcia” outside of his namesake ice cream, “Long Strange Trip” is a surprisingly emotional and compelling portrait of rock stardom. The superb soundtrack, peppered with previously unreleased tracks, sweetens the deal for a film that has become an instant classic in the hallowed rock-doc genre.
