Film  Review : The Love We Make

Terrific star-packed documentary takes viewers onstage, backstage, into car-service back seats and onto New York streets with Paul McCartney just after 9/11 as he muses warmly and wisely and pulls together the landmark Madison Square Garden benefit rock concert that helped heal the country.Hugely likeable, energetic and remarkably talented New York-based ex-Beatle Paul McCartney is the driving force (here also driven by salty old driver George) and emotional center of the decade-old footage that comprises cinéma-vérité vet Albert Maysles’ The Love We Make, which premiered on Sept. 10 on Showtime.But even viewers who caught the program on the smaller screen will want to revisit it in all its big-screen/big-sound glory. The primary pleasure is the up-close look at McCartney, even at a delicate time just after 9/11 as he and the world were smarting from the tragedy. But there’s more to experience as the ex-Beatle tools around Manhattan and comforts New Yorkers only days after 9/11.
