If  You Could Read My Mind is a timely and tasteful reminder of Lightfoot's talent and charm.  It's an exploration of the career, music, and influence of Canadian musical icon Gordon Lightfoot. The array of artists from across time and geography who have covered Lightfoot's work is staggering, and speaks to his talents as a top-tier songwriter. With unprecedented access to the artist, the documentary follows Lightfoot's evolution from Christian choirboy to troubled troubadour to international star and beloved Canadian icon. His iconic Canadian songs put Canadian music on the world stage. At 80 years of age he has a lot of stories to tell. Filled with rich archival footage (the clip of a young Alex Trebek interviewing the singer is especially fun) and testimonials from an impressive array of friends and admirers
