The result is 90 minutes in the company of some of the nicest and most boring people you can imagine ever having a movie made about them.
We hear all kinds of comments -- about personal satisfactions, dissatisfactions, rewards.
It doesn't attempt to neatly summarize the musical experience. Anker gives the players free rein to express their wonderment.
Those who prefer a little meat on their documentary bones may come away hungry.
Music from the Inside Out is not so much about the people, but about what they create, and it's at its most effective when the talking stops.
A couple of moments worth watching with some insightful thoughts on what makes musicians tick. But, the overwhelming majority of the film does't inspire or entertain. Paul Chambers, CNN.
...it's the musical journey more than the final destination that pulls us along.
...undramatic and exceedingly pleasant, like eavesdropping at a dinner of intelligent craftspeople trading their best anecdotes.
These obviously very talented musicians haven't been chosen for their charisma, but their experience and perspective reveals much about the passion and technique of performance.
The film is especially valuable to people with limited knowledge of a major orchestra because it breaks the culture apart and gives its many voices individuality and intimacy.
It's nice to know that these one-time band nerds now have such a warm and rewarding, if challenging, community.
