Review: It’s Only Life After All (2024)

I love the Indigo Girls so much. I’ve been “in” from the beginning. From the first moment I heard “Closer to Fine” on the radio. They have been with me through so many dark hours. They capture yearning like no other. It hurts. I can’t listen to “Watershed” and “Love Will Come to You” to this day. The pain I was feeling when I was listening to those songs over and over has lessened – not disappeared completely – I never get over anything completely. It’s a problem but I don’t have time to work on it. Music, though, contains time, contains memories, and the piercing pain I felt back then is IN the songs and comes rushing back at the first chords.

I wish I liked this doc better. I reviewed for Ebert.
