I think it's a bit of a disservice to the local independent film community to review this documentary as if it were a big budget film. The fact that it was completed despite not having the enormous funding required to pay for the music licensing and big name interviews mentioned should be applauded. The relevance of the story of Warehouse as told by people who were there, a story which would basically disappear from history if not for this documentary, should be acknowledged in a way that makes people want to see the film. The fact that this story is not only about an old New Orleans rock club, but also chronicles a special period of music history, the last decade before rock went corporate, and the artists were separated from the audiences, should be expressed. And the way the making of film has reunited people from across the country should also be acknowledged. I believe any serious fan of rock music would enjoy this film and appreciate the efforts made by the filmmakers.
