Critic Reviews for Only the Strong Survive
There's no problem with a little bias, but Friedman's fan-boy perspective puts the subjects of Only the Strong Survive on too high a pedestal.
Content to merely serve as a cluttered, heart-shaped scrapbook, missing many more stories than it bothers to include.
Fortunately, the performances themselves are beautifully filmed and recorded.
A film that even with its flaws should be cheered for preserving the later years of these towering musical talents.
Audience Reviews for Only the Strong Survive
Ok, so get together a bunch of washed up has-been soul singers that never had any real hits, let them play concerts in front of 100 people thinking they're the cream of the crop reminiscing about the good ol' days and that's what you have here. The craziest, funniest, more torturous 95 mins of my life.
Only good memories come from reliving this music, I sometimes feel bad for the younguns, I know they can listen to it now, but you had to have been in that era, to know what I mean.
