Refreshingly candid and disarmingly reflective, opening at The Ross on Friday, September 6, DAVID CROSBY: REMEMBER MY NAME offers an absorbing look at its subject's life and career. In “DAVID CROSBY: REMEMBER MY NAME,” Crosby is more than just a rock 'n' roll survivor nursing a lifetime of second thoughts. He's a romantic witness to a time that was genuinely about following the road of excess to the palace of wisdom. –Owen Gleiberman, Variety A touching, nostalgia-infused portrait that's imbued with affection for its horny, ornery but consistently charismatic subject. And yet, remarkably, it never comes across as fawning or hagiographic. –Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter It's this crystal-edged, often cutting honesty that makes legendary music man Crosby as fascinating, prickly, bracingly entertaining as he is, for better or for worse. But he's always willing to direct that honesty right at himself, too. –Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service DAVID CROSBY: REMEMBER MY NAME is showing at the Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center on Friday, September 6 through Thursday, September 19. Show times are available at www.TheRoss.org, by consulting your newspaper, or by calling the MRRMAC film information line at 402.472.5353. The Motion Picture Association of America has rated DAVID CROSBY: REMEMBER MY NAME R (for language, drug material, and brief nudity). This program is being presented with the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. A triumph at Sundance, this inspired collaboration between director A.J. Eaton and producer Cameron Crowe coaxes Crosby, member of three major groups in music history (The Byrds; Crosby, Stills & Nash; and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young), into unflinching candor as the singer songwriter confronts mortality and assesses the damage of earlier days. At the same time, his redemptive journey back to music is universally inspiring and uplifting, bearing an emotional impact that transcends the rock documentary genre. In the illuminating twilight of his days as a living legend, “Croz” has chosen living over the legend. He’s making less money but more music than ever, hitting the road despite serious health issues, surrounded by young players who have helped inspire a critically-acclaimed creative streak of fresh songs, albums, and performances. As a troubled talent but uncompromising and principled spirit whose voice has been harmoniously woven into the fabric of pop culture and music royalty since the mid-1960s (first with the Byrds but most famously as a founding member of the super group Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young), Crosby finally distinguishes himself as a masterful raconteur and unsparingly self-aware survivor. Taking viewers through soaring career highs, along with the chemical variety that led to ravaging addictions and serious prison time, DAVID CROSBY: REMEMBER MY NAME explodes myths and sheds profound new light on all the music, politics, and personalities that crossed his incredible — and ongoing — path. Only Crowe and Eaton could have composed a cinematic portrait so intimate and unforgettable.
