David Crosby: Remember My Name
MAD | Vancity Theatre Screening
"All the main guys I made music with hate my guts. All of them." Interviewed by Almost Famous filmmaker (and former Rolling Stone journo) Cameron Crowe, 60s survivor David Crosby reflects on a long, heady, and often turbulent career in this candid, soul-searching doc. A long time resident of Laurel Canyon, Crosby is one of those artists who defined the hippie era - in good ways, and bad. Many of his illustrious former collaborators (Neil Young, Graham Nash, Stephen Stills) apparently hold him in low esteem, and he’s too sharp a thinker not to have realized there’s probably a good reason for that. His copious drug use is part of the story. But Crosby has charm, too, and the film makes the case for his formidable creative gifts.
"As much as the film celebrates his creativity and gazes unflinchingly at his failings, it also functions as a valedictory, almost a requiem of sorts. Think of it as the film version of the final albums made by Leonard Cohen and David Bowie, who made wrenching final statements that they likely knew would be their last." Steve Pond, The Wrap
"Piercing… a rock-doc like few others." Jason Gorber, POV magazine
