    Long time Running

    ★★★½

    I wasn’t too interested in seeing this documentary, since I wouldn’t consider myself a Hip fan. I like their music a lot, which I think any Canadian does, but it’s always been mainly radio music to me.

    Sadly though, we found out today that Gord Downie passed away from his battle with cancer. Even me not being a huge fan, it hit hard. I knew my local theatre was playing this documentary but didn’t have a ride or money. So…

    It's great how you can go back to a film after a period of time and appreciate it more and connect even more. Especially when it becomes a new favourite.

    I am completely shook.

    I haven't had this incredible of an experience in a theatre since "Her", and even that doesn't come close to this. I've never had so many emotions flow through me. I went from laughing to coming close to crying. Only reason I didn't was cause my friend was there.

    This movie doesn't miss a note. The music is beautiful and I felt like everyone in the theatre was going to break into dance come the end.…
