The movie certainly contains information about these session musicians that I didn't know previously, but beyond that it was pretty dull. I ended up having this on in the background while doing the dishes and I never felt like I needed to stop what I was doing and attend more to the movie. So, the two stars actually means "dishwashing movie."
Great musicians, boring film. Would have been better as a half-hour radio program or podcast and I wouldn't have to look at people sitting in a chair talking or photos of album covers that I had seen in every thrift store record bin. I already know what Phil Spector, Dick Clark and Cher look like, as well.
Tributo a The Wrecking Crew (y a su endiabladamente talentoso guitarrista, Tommy Tedesco), grupo ecléctico de "músicos de fondo", siempre anónimos y admirablemente versátiles, que colaboraron con The Beach Boys, Sonny & Cher, The Mamas and the Papas, etc., así como con solistas, como Frank y Nancy Sinatra, y Dean Martin. Irresistible banquete musical, un imperdible viaje por la historia del rock-pop de los 1960s.
Uninspired and under whelming take on the mighty L.A. session musicians of the sixties/seventies affectionately called 'the wrecking crew'. Unlike recent docs like 'Muscle Shoals' or '20 Steps' this film fails to find a hook to entrance the audience. When it sticks to the music its enjoyable enough but when it becomes more of a testament to the sainthood of the director's late father it gets a little tedious.
