Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band is a confessional, cautionary, and occasionally humorous tale of Robbie Robertson's young life and the creation of one of the most enduring groups in the history of popular music, The Band. The film is a moving story of Robertson's personal journey, overcoming adversity and finding camaraderie alongside the four other men who would become hi brothers in music and who together made their mark on music history. Once Were Brothers blends rare archival footage, photography iconic songs and interviews with many of Robertson's friends and collaborators including Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison Martin Scorsese, Peter Gabriel, Taj Mahal, Dominique Robertson, Ronnie Hawkins, and more. In a career spanning six decades, Robbie Robertson has continued to create as a songwriter, producer, performer, actor, author and film composer. A half-Mohawk, half-Jewish kid from Toronto, Robertson would travel from the dives of Yonge Street to the deep South as an ambitious 16-year-old on a musical mission. His raw talent would thrust him into the spotlight and put him at the center of a cultural revolution, backing Bob Dylan on his notorious 1966 "electric" world tour and later, as a member of The Band, collaborating with Dylan on the ground-breaking Basement Tapes and inventing Americana with songs like "The Weight," "Up on Cripple Creek" and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." After 17 years, The Band called it quits with a lavish farewell concert on November 25th, 1976, at San Francisco' Winterland Ballroom, immortalized in the seminal concert film, The Last Waltz, directed by Martin Scorsese - considered by many as the greatest rock and roll film of all time.

When I first heard about this documentary, I was intrigued. I've been a fan of Robbie since I first saw him on MTV's The Real World. I watched this documentary and was blown away. Robbie was honest and candid about his experiences as a child in the '60s, his relationship with his family, and the support of his band The Band. It really opened my eyes to how the music industry, and the music industry in general, affected people. I'm still reeling from this film. It was like I was right there with Robbie. I really believe this documentary is a must-see for anyone who has a passion for music. I hope it makes people realize that there is a lot more to life than the music industry. It will leave you with a new perspective on your own life. My one problem with this documentary is the music itself. It is really hard to hear some of the music when it's such a low-budget film. I can see why it would be hard to make a documentary about the music industry, but it's really hard to hear music that doesn't really sound that good. But it does get better. When you see the music videos, they look amazing. The video for "Do You Really Love Me," for example, is an amazing film. I love that they chose to use real musicians, because most of the music videos are just people in costumes. I love the use of music in this documentary. I think it really captures the music that they were talking about. It's really hard to find music these days, and this documentary is a great tool to help find the music you want. Overall, I would definitely recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to see what it was like to be a teenager in the '60s. It will make you feel like you were there. I also think this documentary is a must-see for anyone who wants to understand the music industry. I think it's a really great tool to help you understand the music industry and how it affected people's lives. I also think it's a really good tool to get a new perspective on the music industry.

This documentary is an interesting look at one of the most influential rock bands of the '60s and '70s, The Band. It is a fascinating look at the band and how they came to be. There is a lot of information about the band, but the documentary is only good for those who like to know about the band. I personally love this documentary, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the band. The Band is one of the best bands of the '60s and a musical genius. This documentary is excellent for anyone who likes to learn more about this band.

Robbie Robertson's A Very Special Christmas is an outstanding documentary that I have watched countless times. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there who would disagree with me but I think that A Very Special Christmas is one of the best documentaries out there and it is definitely a must see. The movie starts with a little introduction that gives you a basic idea of what it's about and then we are taken on a tour of Robbie Robertson's childhood. We are introduced to his family and the people around him and they are all very warm and friendly and it seems as if the entire world has been very friendly and welcoming to Robbie. Robbie does a very good job of showing us what it was like growing up in a world of friendship and trust and also showing us how difficult it is to grow up and move out of your home in the modern world. We are then taken to see what a man like Robbie would do in the city and how he would cope with the changes in his life. We are also shown what Robbie would do in his spare time as well as some of the things he would do in his spare time. We are then introduced to The Band and they do a great job of making us feel as if we were a part of this band. I also thought the music was amazing and I have seen the music a lot of times before. The movie is very good and I think that it is one of the best documentaries out there.

When I saw the movie, I was not surprised by the fact that this film was made by Robbie Robertson. However, it was surprising that this movie is not a reality show. The Band is a talented group of musicians that all played together in the same band. Their main goal is to get their music out there and make money. They make an honest effort to do this, and they are honest with each other about it. The fact that the Band has made so much money off of making music was surprising to me. In a lot of ways, the movie reminded me of my life. The movie showed the difficulties of the band members, the difficulties that some people go through in the music business, and the struggles that the Band had. Although, I believe that the movie does show the benefits of making music. Although, the film does show how difficult it is for a musician to make money, the movie also showed the benefits of making music, especially in the industry that they were in. I would recommend this film to anyone who wants to learn more about making music.

This documentary was not made for entertainment. It is meant to educate the viewer on the numerous differences between the views of these two bands and their various personal and professional histories. It's interesting to see the lyrics of the song "Auld Lang Syne" sung by both Robbie Robertson and The Band, who were a part of the infamous The Who. I found it amazing how Robbie Robertson's band could have been "The Last Of The Big Boys" in the same year of the release of "Bohemian Rhapsody". I was amazed to see that the two bands were indeed in fact, brothers. This documentary is a must see for fans of either band and fans of music in general.

First off, I would like to say that this documentary was excellent, it was very interesting to see the life of a true artist, who came into his own and is now able to talk about his life and art. I felt like there was a lot of out of the box thinking, that maybe the film would not be as good as it is, however I felt it was a great film, I am not a person who likes to talk about art or poetry, but I am quite open minded when it comes to that. The interview's were well done, the documentary itself was interesting, the way the music was presented was well done. I would recommend this documentary to anyone who is interested in music, especially bands. Although I would recommend this documentary to everyone, I would also recommend it to the music lovers. You can not go wrong with this movie, and I would recommend it to anyone.

A must see for anyone who is interested in the history of The Doors. Anyone who is a fan of The Doors or the music of The Doors should not miss this documentary.

I was really shocked to find out that this documentary didn't have a cast or crew. I'm pretty sure they had a small group of people working on it but still. It's great to see how the other members of the band deal with it. I really appreciated that they didn't have the macho attitude that a lot of bands have when it comes to their support of homosexuality. They were very realistic and open about it. I thought the movie was really great. I enjoyed it a lot. I have never seen this kind of support in a documentary. I also enjoyed how they covered the music and the history behind the band. I'm really glad they released this. It would be really cool if they did a sequel to this. It would also be cool to see how the other members of the band deal with the fact that they're gay. I'm not gay but I think it's a great thing to have that kind of support. It's really sad to see a lot of artists who were really good musicians and who had a lot of support put out of their minds. I hope that they can get some support from some of the artists they have. It's sad because some of the great bands that were really talented and had support from a lot of people really didn't have a chance.

Although I'm not a "fans" of Robbie Robertson, I was intrigued enough to see this documentary. It's interesting to hear from him, who is now a rock legend, in his own words. It's also interesting to hear from his band, which is now defunct, at the time of this film. His story is fascinating. It was amazing to hear him talk about the musical inspiration for his songs. I found the movie to be well-balanced, giving the information on both sides. I enjoyed the music, but also the stories of Robertson's family, including his siblings, who gave interviews. There was also a great amount of information about The Band. I liked seeing the great photos of the band and the time that Robertson spent with them, even though I'm not a fan. Robertson's brother and sister were also interviewed. I think that this movie is a must-see for any fans of rock music.

While I found this documentary to be lacking in some key areas, I found the documentary itself to be extremely interesting. The film follows Robbie Robertson as he's finally released from jail, having served time for the murder of his girlfriend and her friends, and has to deal with the aftermath of his past life. The film's greatest strength is that it is not a documentary in the traditional sense, but rather it is a film that's not about Robbie Robertson's past life, but rather about how he was able to overcome his past life and deal with the aftermath. I also think the documentary is incredibly inspiring, and while the subject matter might not be suitable for younger children, the fact that the documentary is based on his real life experiences makes it especially important. This documentary shows us that although the past doesn't make up the past, the future does. I hope that I can convince other people to see this film, and see that it's worth seeing.

A touching and insightful documentary about the late Robbie Robertson who was known to be the most famous rock musician of the time. He is shown here being interviewed by some of the leading critics and experts of rock music, including a lot of the rock legends himself. Robbie is a very charismatic and very well spoken guy who is able to present a lot of interesting facts and opinions about his life. He also talks about his struggles with his mental illness and his relationship with his mother. There is a lot of good stuff here, and the documentary does a good job of showing the life of this young man, and how he got his big break. He was a good musician and a really good person, and you can't help but to feel for him. This is a great documentary for people who want to know more about the music of the past. It's a great way to start your day, and it's definitely worth watching.

One of my favorite documentary of all time. You can feel the pain and the excitement of the band as they prepare for their first ever tour. This documentary is a must see for anyone that likes music, or music in general. It makes you question your love for music, and also helps to show that music is not just a form of entertainment, but a form of healing and creativity. I feel like everyone should watch this documentary. I know I do.

There are so many brilliant stories to be told about this great country and we will never know the extent to which they are as told by this great man. In his final days, the director chose to tell a story of how a charismatic young man rose from poverty to become a leader of a legendary rock band. The stories told here are both shocking and fascinating, and the interviews with Robbie and others offer insight into the life of one of the most influential musicians of all time. This documentary is a true testament to how music can transform lives, and how music can make the world a better place.

I am a huge fan of The Band. I am also a huge fan of Robbie Robertson. This film has everything that I love about The Band and nothing else. The Band has been my idol since the age of 6. The first time I saw this film, I cried. I cried when the documentary ended. I cried when they sang "I Want You" at the end of the movie. The documentary is a journey of how they came to be. This film is great. It is so informative. It's a great way to learn about them. It is also really funny. The music is great and all the songs are very memorable. You can relate to almost every song on the album. This is one of the best documentaries that I have ever seen.

Robbie Robertson is a very talented and talented actor. I don't think I have ever seen him in anything that he hasn't been in. I think this documentary was so well done because the documentary is really about Robbie's life and his time in the Vietnam War. He was on the wrong side of the war but was so well liked by his fellow soldiers and was a good man. I am a big fan of Robbie's and was very happy to have his story told to me. I was impressed with how it was edited and with how it showed his career and how he was a good man at the time. He was a great singer and a good actor. I think his life was so different from other people's lives. He is one of the greatest actors ever. I can't wait to see what he will do next.

The film is a fascinating insight into the life of the legendary John Lennon. What it shows is both an incredible life story and the young man's world view. It is the story of a man who had a profound impact on the world and how he would later try to make amends for his past sins. His story of dealing with the death of his brother in the early 1960's is told in a way that is both disturbing and uplifting. He becomes a catalyst for the formation of the Sesame Street group and shows how it made him an international celebrity. He also reflects on his life with his wife Yoko Ono and their daughter from a previous marriage. His relationship with the late Yoko Ono is at times interesting and at times heartbreaking. It is a very interesting film and I would highly recommend it.

Robbie Robertson has probably been a controversial musician in his life, with both positive and negative reviews. In his autobiography, he recounts the life of his father and how he found his way to "music". He also relates the story of how he met his wife, his younger brother and then later on his younger brother's band, which was a success. But it seems that Robbie was the first in his family to be a musician and now he is getting recognised as one of the world's best. The documentary, which was directed by a famous musician himself, George Strait, is a moving and entertaining documentary that tells the story of Robbie Robertson's life. The film features interviews with Robbie's family and friends, as well as the band members and producers of the band, who tell their own stories about the time in which they met. It's also interesting to hear some of the other people who were involved in the band in their personal lives and how they felt about Robbie Robertson. This is a moving and entertaining documentary that will leave you feeling good and with a great feeling. It's a documentary that has many elements that make it great. The story is told from Robbie's point of view and you get to see what it was like to meet him and his family. It's a well told and an excellent documentary. Robbie Robertson's life is inspiring, moving and inspirational. The documentary is well directed and has a great soundtrack. It's a good documentary that's worth watching.

I really liked the book. But, this movie is much better. It's not a documentary, it's a collection of interviews. Robbie is a fascinating and very unique individual. I especially liked the interview with his father. It was amazing. Also, the book is much more artistic than the movie. But, the book is the best book ever written, and this movie is great for all ages. I also think it's very important that people see the movie, especially kids, because you can really see how much of a good person Robbie Robertson is. He is a good guy and I think that's why the book was so popular. But, I hope that this movie will have a big impact on Robbie's life, because he deserves it. He's really a good guy. I think this movie is really a great movie. But, it's not for everybody, because it's a little bit more than a documentary. I really recommend it, because I think it's one of the best documentaries ever made. But, if you're not a fan of documentaries, I think you'll really like it. And, I hope that people will see this movie. It's great. And, it's one of the best movies ever made. If you're a fan of Robbie Robertson, you need to see this movie. It's a great movie. I also hope that it will have a big impact on Robbie's life, because he deserves it.

I saw this documentary about a decade ago, and I still remember what it was about, but I didn't remember it's title, or the content. So when I found out it was about Robbie Robertson, I decided to check it out. I was very surprised. This documentary, directed by Mark Boal, shows what happened to Robbie and his band, in the late 90s, as he was trying to take his band back to their roots. The movie is very informative, and it does give a good insight into what happened to Robbie Robertson and his band. The movie does a good job of showing how Robbie went from being the band's leader, to having a lot of power and control, and the band was losing its edge. There are also many stories of their struggles to gain a proper audience, to get in the minds of people. I would say this movie is worth seeing, and I recommend it to anyone who likes music.

This is a great documentary on Robbie Robertson, and he should be celebrated for being a legendary singer, as this documentary is about his life and music. Robbie had a reputation for being a very drug and alcohol fueled person. But what really surprised me was the amount of drugs he took. At one point he is on the floor of a prison cell while being strapped down and all this is documented. This documentary is more about his rise to fame and his attempts to make it as a star. He is asked a lot of questions about his relationship with his father and how he turned out. There are some extremely interesting stories of what his father told him about the way his son played. It's also interesting that he is asked a lot about his relationship with his older sister, who he calls his brother. I was also interested in seeing how he was able to keep himself clean, how he dealt with the pressures of fame and money. In the end I think this is an excellent documentary that deserves more attention.
