FrontMan I enjoyed this review almost as much as I enjoyed watching the movie last night! Thank you, Wally, for lending your time and talent to reviewing the film.

I've been around a while, and have had the pleasure of meeting the guys in the band and some of their family, so no big surprises here in the regard. What did surprise me was the generosity of the Anastasios and Stephen Cantor in what they allowed to share here - "letting the camera roll and extra few seconds" as you wrote above.

I shouldn't be surprised tho. Trey is living more and more of his life deeply in the moment. Or in the Now as he says a couple times. That voracious appetite for authentic creation, and the courage to keep trying in front of us all, spilled from the stage and onto the screen last night. I laughed a lot and shed some tears too. It's not a perfect movie, but it's not trying to be. The "weight" of the camera and it's natural snake-charm like evocation of the ego is often present, but the subjects are aware and that awareness allows them at times to transcend back into the moment and wonderful things happen.

My prevailing sentiment leaving the theatre, and still today, is gratitude. A big mother-fucking boat of gratitude for him, them, you, all of us who are lucky enough to be in on this grand secret.

Bonus points for all the footage around my home town. Was fun watching from the Double E in Essex, VT.

Enjoy folks and thank you again Wally for an excellent review! is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
