Fresh: Loose and ragtag, stirring and poignant, the documentary "Ain't in It for My Health: A Film About Levon Helm" proves a fitting tribute to its late star ...
Fresh: For the fans left bereft by his 2012 death, it's impossible to imagine a more exquisite, honest, and beautifully detailed documentary about the life of Levon Helm than Jacob Hatley's Ain't in It for My Health.
An amazing artist until the end...
I loved this movie. Levon Helm was a fascinating character in The Last Waltz, and he's even more interesting here. It's really an amazing look at a flawed but amazing man.
