Critic Reviews for This Time
Scruffy documentary, in need of more focus, about the travails of ever-aspiring singers has rewarding moments among the randomness.
As with many similar films, there is an excess of clips, with the music left in teasing snippets.
This earnest, at times touching, reach-for-your-dreams doc about musical hopefuls in middle age gets sidetracked quickly.
It's difficult to understand what's film-worthy about these people, or why their stories have been joined.
Director Victor Mignatti's engaging but near fatally bifurcated dispatch from the fringes of the floundering music industry.
