I couldn't quite see clear to include this in my list of six music docs for box, as there were enough that were clearly better.

Nonetheless, this is entirely worth seeing. Jones is an excellent filmmaker, Isbell is one of our finest living songwriters, and the dynamic between Isbell and Shires is very real.

I enjoyed it, and it prompted me to finally act on my long-standing intention to buy a couple of his albums. They both turned out to be excellent, so now I'm a confirmed fan.

Oh cool! I’ve worked with Sam on an earlier doc and he’s amazing.
