"Once Were Brothers" is a moving cautionary tale and an important piece of music history, but it's in the pure joy of such moments that The Band is best remembered. Full Review

It's a bracing journey filled with wonderful anecdotes and splendid footage, and it is, emphatically, Robbie Robertson telling the story of The Band, from his perspective. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- The better way to come close to an understanding of who The Band was is to re-watch The Last Waltz instead. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Robertson is chasing something different here - a fond remembrance of the complicated friendships lost along the way that celebrates the good times through the music they created while they could. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Robertson has a gift for romanticizing his own hero's journey, even if in the end, the film comes off as elaborate self-justification. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- The group will remain most famous for the great 1978 Martin Scorsese rock-doc, "The Last Waltz"; while this is nowhere on par with that, it provides a valuable look into the group's origins, dynamics and the making of that great Scorsese film. Full Review

Rating: 87/100 -- It has great performance footage, interesting talking heads, and freighted music. It feels sentimental and bittersweet, with Robertson coming across as a thoughtful, respectful, vaguely professorial figure. Full Review

Description by

Inspired by Robertson’s 2017 bestselling memoir Testimony, ONCE WERE BROTHERS: ROBBIE ROBERTSON AND THE BAND is a confessional, cautionary, and sometimes humorous tale of Robertson’s young life and the creation of one of the most enduring groups in the history of popular music. The film blends rare archival footage and interviews with many of Robertson’s friends and collaborators, including Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Scorsese, Taj Mahal, Peter Gabriel, David Geffen and Ronnie Hawkins, among others.
