Trevor Smith’s The Smalls: Forever is a Long Time is a hayshaker of a fan doc that follow’s the band’s 2014 reunion tour and saddles up for a fistful of powder retrospective of the band’s genesis. Mythologies like the smalls are written with John Deere caps, saddle horse eulogies and flocks of Gibson Flying V guitars. From the edge of Canadian Shield to the wide sky prairie, west through a roan of Rockies, down the Thompson and Fraser to the Pacific, the smalls held reign. In excavating such topography, Smith deftly curates artists of profoundly dichotomous influence and renown. the smalls’ DNA is written into the west next to the Burgess Shale and freight train laments.  Such rare archeology is essential and necessary Canadian cinema.
