Rufus and Martha Wainwright host an all-star tribute concert for their late mother, folk singer Kate McGarrigle, in this old-fashioned but engrossing rock-doc .
There's virtually no biographical content. The songs stick very much to one plaintive folk-pop style, and if that is not your passion, the flood of concert footage becomes wearing fairly early on.
The film is both celebration and elegy, a sing-along and a cry-along, a cathartic moan and a perfect bliss-out.
As a musical experience, it is generous and moving. But as a documentary, "Sing Me the Songs" is an awkward hybrid of concert film and rock-star biography.
Given that the entire show and film is dedicated to McGarrigle, you wish this exquisitely made, undeniably moving family album featured even more of the singer herself.
Warm and poignant, but with excessive use of concert footage and lack of insight/intrigue. Strictly for avid fans of Kate McGarrigle. Just listening to the soundtrack might be more rewarding and satisfying.
