The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart – 8

Everything you need to know about one of my favorite groups in less than two hours, this documentary was loving but not fawning, with samples of their best songs (out of the 1,000 they wrote). Archival footage was mixed in good proportion with current interviews, and I couldn’t take my eyes off the Greek-god looks of Barry Gibb. Not innovators or, therefore, critics’ darlings, the Bee Gees followed musical trends–specifically, the Beatles and disco–but their catchy tunes and beautiful three-part harmonies made one overlook lyrics that were banal or even nonsensical. The less depth, in the music and this movie, the better.
