The only thing wrong with this four hour Grateful Dead documentary is that it's too short!

The Grateful Dead is many things to many people – psychedelic pioneers, creators of the "jam band" phenomenon and the object of one of the most loyal fanbases in popular music. But to a great many people their appeal remains a mystery. With the critically acclaimed documentary, director and self-professed "Deadhead" Amir Bar-Lev goes on a four hour journey through the band's history in an attempt to explain what makes this travelling group of aging hippies an essential part of the lives of so many people. The result is mandatory viewing for any fan – as well as a film that can turn anyone into a "Deadhead".
