Once were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and the BandCanada, USA | 2020 | 102min | DCP | Color, B&W | Documentary
“The Band” is the name of a five-member band that started with Ronnie Hawkins' band, and who acted as his backband when Bob Dylan tried to combine folk and rock. It was a band representing Canadian country rock but overshadowed by Bob Dylan. Eventually, they appear brilliantly with their debut album [Music from Big Pink] of genius.
The film chronologically follows the entire process that they were brilliantly recognized as a debut album through the days of the Hawkins band and Bob Dylan backband, and disbanded their band with the final work, [Last Waltz], in which all the members participated. The voice of leader Robbie Robertson leads us into the great time of “The Band” with the revolutionary moments of Western pop music from folk rock to psychedelic. (MAENG Soo-jin)
