It's a story that's truly worth telling, but should have been pruned by 30 minutes and it wouldn't have lost a thing artistically.

A moving, brilliantly photographed picture that portrays the legendary eccentric folksinger Woody Guthrie in a trip across Depression-era America.

Bound for Glory is outstanding biographical cinema, not only of the late Woody Guthrie but also of the 1930s Depression era which served to disillusion, inspire and radicalize him and millions of other Americans.

Though made with an eye for the Bicentennial, this biopic of folk singer and union organizer Woody Guthrie didn't make any attempt to speak to contemporary viewers, which might explain its box-office failure.

A remarkably touching and humane film about Woody Guthrie

The major strengths of the movie are Haskell Wexler's cinematography and the score (both of which deservedly picked up Oscars): they create a sense of time and place perfectly in accord with the story.

Time Out
February 9, 2006
An overlong, sentimental and lifeless biopic of Woody Guthrie.

Hope you like folk music, because there isn't much variety to be found among his music. Neither is there much variety in the scenery.
