Wish I'd never seen it
14 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

I know I'm supposed to excuse all of Clapton's poor behavior over the years due to his drug and alcohol abuse. But the overall impression one gets from this documentary is that he's a selfish jerk, leaving a wake of destroyed relationships and obligations where ever he went. I've loved his music years, but after seeing this it will be a bit harder to enjoy it quite as much.
