By 1997, Crosby, Stills & Nash were without a label thanks to a drastic artistic slump, but they began working on a new album, paying for studio time out of their own pockets. Neil Young expressed interest in the tapes, and suddenly, a new CSNY album was in the works. Even though Young's continual tinkering pushed its release back by months, Looking Forward still feels rushed and half-finished. It's immediately apparent that the record began as a self-financed project; it sounds weirdly muted, as if all the levels weren't set accurately; similarly, it's possible to hear sometimes awkward overdubs added to basically completed tracks. While they may have named the album Looking Forward, CSNY are alternately nostalgic and haunted by the past, which colors their attempts to look toward the future.

This is an amusing time capsule film that really doesn't have much real nudity unless you consider the bare backside nudity. This is pretty much an academic look at nudism at the time the film was made. Most of the film is a travelogue with bits shot in New York City, the upstate New York nudist camp, Paris, a "nudist" camp outside it, another French one and finally a trip into Germany. The narration is matter of fact and straight forward. Its actually a pretty good documentary on the subject that is hampered by the limitations of when it was shot. If you're looking for retro-porn, then please don't bother :)
