Small-screen portable media players like iPods may be the all-time worst place to watch movies, but airplanes run a close second – so much so, in fact, that folks will often use that dubious option as a barometer for their interest in them. The truth is that I watched the majority of D Tour on an airplane because I had no other option, but it's a testament to the effectiveness of the film that I was inspired and moved to tears despite having to do so. A documentary about Rogue Wave drummer Pat Spurgeon dealing with the demands of a debilitating kidney disease, temporary or ineffective treatments, and the search for a permanent cure while meeting the demands of a grueling tour schedule, D Tour is a powerful, evocative and deeply personal story.
