Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Foo Fighters:
Back and Forth performs as a great documentary for both Foo Fighter and Nirvana fans alike. The film relies on over 1000 hours of edited film footage as well as terrific interviews that involve both current and retired band members. This thorough and complete documentary provides easily digestible history of one of the world’s best rock bands. The music is particularly enjoyable. A large thank you to Director James Moll for bringing this film to life in such a cohesive and well-timed presentation.
