“Velvet Underground”.. this doc by Todd Haynes is opening in theaters but you can also see it on Apple Tv- Plus.  It’s a straightforward story , starting with Lou Reed’s childhood on Long Island and John Cale’s in Wales. It’s close to halfway through before the Velvet Underground starts recording their first album in 1967 and there’s very little footage of them playing live but “The Wall Street Journal” says it’s a beautifully poetic meditation on the emotional and cultural power of rock and the allure of making a life in art. It scores 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.
