David Crosby of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young looks back at his music-filled, drug-fuelled years – not with regret, but with frankness and fervour, in this outstanding documentary.

Crosby has been battling ill health and addiction issues for decades; it's amazing he's still on his feet, let alone in fine voice and touring. As he says, he loves singing, but he hates being old. In a confessional mood, he discusses the many opportunities and fine women (Joni Mitchell included) that he turned down in favour of coke or heroin. He recalls the Laurel Canyon parties, the hippy scene, and his collaborators – Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young. In the 1970s, when the band was riding a wave, the songwriter-singer-guitarist persistently wore out his welcome with his wild man antics. Outspoken, irascible Crosby was never going to be an easy man to document, but first-time director A.J. Eaton does an impressive job of showing the man behind the distinctive mo'.

A touching, nostalgia-infused portrait that's imbued with affection for its horny, ornery but consistently charismatic subject. And yet, remarkably, it never comes across as fawning or hagiographic.
Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter
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
