Echo in the Canyon

Rated Parental Guidance (Coarse Language) ~ Runs 82 minutes

Dir.: Andrew Slater, US, 2019

Jakob Dylan, Tom Petty, Stephen Stills, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, David Crosby, Cat Power, Michelle Phillips, Norah Jones

“Early in this fascinating documentary, Eric Clapton describes why he gravitated to the hilly Los Angeles enclave of Laurel Canyon. ‘I was attracted to eccentrics,’ he says, ‘and they were all there.’ The eccentrics to which he is referring made up some of the greatest talents of the folk rock era covered in the film’s 1964-68 time frame.. If you care anything about the music of groups like The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Mamas and the Papas, The Beach Boys, or Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the ramshackle, engagingly anecdotal Echo in the Canyon is required viewing... What makes this more than just a movie for fans of that music – and what music! – is that it delves into what made that era such a creative cauldron, comparable in some ways, as the film points out, to Paris in the 1920s and ’30s. It’s certainly possible to experience this film as a vast nostalgia trip. But it doesn’t overdo the hearts and flowers. The musicians featured here are important because their music was important... But when Crosby talks about how he and others ‘put real poetry’ on the radio, he may be bragging, but he’s also right... The ways in which these artistic inspirations abounded and cross-fertilized is the central theme of Echo in the Canyon... the focus here is on the conviviality of those Laurel Canyon years and the creative ferment and idealism that came out of it. As Nash says, looking back, ‘I still believe music can change the world.’ - Peter Rainer, The Christian Science Monitor
