Movie Reviews

Remembering a friend
Ron E. Millisor | 07/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"John Denver was a special musician and tunesmith who wrote and sang his music in such a pure form that it's almost critic proof. This doc is not full of info or even told in a linear fashion but is more a remembrance of the feeling John Denver created in those who knew the man and loved his work. While watching it I was instantly transported to a much more innocent time in my life. Denver's music has always struck a spiritual cord but is never dogmatic. It's the kind of spiritual that anyone can partake in and wind up feeling more human. This is a must companion to any John Denver collection."
Best rememberance documentary yet!!!

"Of all the bio's or rememberance documentaries done on an artist, I have to say this was the best of all that I've seen! It was very insightful covering what inspired John to write certain songs, what was happening in his life during the times he was writing them, and gave a well rounded perspective of his life and career taken from his own narratives as well as those who knew him personally or worked with him through the years. A definite "Must have" for any John Denver fan!!!"
Nice tribute, but limited

"Overall I liked this production/documentary of John Denver's life. The DVD chapters aren't chronological, but rather each attempts to address a different aspect of his career (for example, some of the chapter titles are "A Steward of the Earth," "The Embodiment of Love," and "The Showman"). There are also many interviews with the people who knew JD best, and this helps to weave the chapters together.

However, I did realize eventually that this DVD covers mainly JD's RCA career, which ended around 1986. That might be because the vast majority of his hits came from the 1970s, but even the concert footage included on the DVD (four songs) are from the 1970s and early 1980s. There is nothing here from 1986 to 1997 (the year he died). While that's not absolutely necessary, I suppose, it felt to me like it was lacking something.

Still, despite this, I enjoyed the program. And most Denver fans will too. Artists like Denver don't come around very often.

Four stars."

"A very special presentation of an excellent musician,performer and humanitarian who touched so many lives so deeply. I never tire of watching this dvd over and over again and remembering the joy that John Denver gave, and continues to give, to the world in his music."
