      Brad Wheeler Globe and Mail In the end - and this may well be the end - Long Time Running is about perseverance, both the band's and Downie's. Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 15, 2017 Full Review Jane Stevenson Toronto Sun Hip fans will enjoy not only the behind-the-scenes footage of Downie getting ready for each night's show on the trek but the entire group's collective memory of their 30-year personal and professional journey. Rated: 4.5/5 Sep 14, 2017 Full Review Jared Mobarak The Film Stage Maybe a documentary about The Hip's fandom will come in the future, but right now the story that matters most is the band's tragic yet empowering dissolution. Rated: B Nov 21, 2017 Full Review Brian Gibson Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Alberta) But it's the unsteady, un-Hip-like lurching-from hallowed career-retrospective, to cross-country concert-doc, to one-last-success story, to farewell love-letter-that makes this no show-stopper. Nov 2, 2017 Full Review Brian D. Johnson Maclean's Magazine And amid the mass adoration, they capture heart-breaking moments of intimacy-Downie sitting backstage in his underwear, polishing his black boots, a ritual inherited from his father, brushing them as if his life depended on it. Sep 21, 2017 Full Review Sarah Kurchak Consequence On every level, Long Time Running offers something new to the rock doc genre and to Tragically Hip enthusiasts.

      Audience Member If you are not moved by this film, you don't have a heart. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member An intimate look at Canada's band from their start to their epic final journey with frontman Gord Downie as he battled cancer. It is poignant and real and truly a story for the ages. It all started in Kingston and ended there too and a nation watched, sang along, and cried... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautiful doc on The Hip, Gord Downie's cancer diagnosis, their final tour & their fans. I didn't know much about TTH as they weren't played very much around Boston, but I quickly became a fan thanks to Gord, his lyrics & the band's unique style. An excellent example of strength, hope & love. Bravo! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/18 Full Review Audience Member An emotional send off for a great man who fronted a great band. I can think of no other band or musician who is held in such high esteem by their country in the unique way that the Hip and Gord Downie were elevated to hero status in Canada. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Emotional, heartfelt, and touching. Gord made sure to look fans in the eyes, and touch Canadian hearts. So powerful. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Wonderful. Sad. A must-see for every Canadian. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews
