BACK IN TIME REVIEWED
“Back in Time” took place over two years. While it’s fun hearing the anecdotes and interview quips, we hit a wall. How many times do we need to use film anniversaries to keep waxing poetic about the same material? It’s not a slam on Back in Time, the documentary is rather excellent. It’s just that we hit a wall with this nostalgia culture.
I’m sure that everyone reading this has seen one of the many BTTF documentaries released over the last year or so. Whether it’s on Netflix or disc, this documentary remains the closest to the source material. Cutting out of the fandom bits and focusing on the heart of the matter strengthens the content. But, I just can’t shake it. I’ve seen this before and I’ll probably never revisit it.
