Documentaries like this don't come by very often. This is one of the most touching films I have ever seen. Watching Levon go thru his cancer battle, how bitter he is about the band when the Grammies want to induct them into the hall of fame. Parts are just fellow artists sitting around with him telling stories. You really feel you get to know Levon a little bit by the end of the film. I don't want you to think this is just a film of a bitter old man because it's not. Thru everything Levon almost always has a smile on his face. You can see how much Rick and Richard ment to him. When asked about attending the Grammies he says "how does it help Rick and Richard. It's just a cash grab for the suits. Where were they when they were around". One of the hardest things to watch is Rick Danko's wife living in an old age home. How unhappy she is and how much she misses him.
The most touching scene in the film is Levon seeing the first pictures of his grandchild. You can't fake a face like that. He was one proud Papa and it's great that he lived long enough to see Amy's baby.
You really don't have to be a fan to watch this. Not even a music fan. This film is about the triumph of the human spirit.
There will never be another "Band" and there sure as Hell will never be another Levon and this film let's you get to know the man just a little better.
This film should be nominated and win the Oscar for best Documentary!

Levon Helm is/was one of the people in my generation, who did exactly what he wanted to do and was honest and humble with the outcome. He was a great musician and didn't need a fancy stage to enjoy his music. He was a success in every way personally and musically. This film shows all of him and I love to hear his comments about his life. I will watch it many, many times.

I found it kind of depressing. Not the fact that he was dying but that he had such bitterness about The Band.
