Jimi: All Is by My Side (2014)

"[Benjamin's] mesmerizing work saves this unique and somewhat controversial new biopic from a level of entirely un-Jimi-like mediocrity." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Muscle Shoals (2013)

"Even fans who don't know Muscle Shoals by name know its music by heart. Now they can also see how much soul went into it." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me (2013)

"All the making-of footage and scenes offering a taste of Memphis in the '70s will probably thrill established Big Star lovers in a big way." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Greetings From Tim Buckley (2013)

"Penn Badgley delivers a pivotal performance as the younger Buckley, coming off with just enough pretentiousness and attitude." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Neil Young Journeys (2012)

"Forget Crosby, Stills and Nash and maybe even Crazy Horse. Jonathan Demme might be Neil Young's ultimate collaborator." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience (2009)

"It's too bad the film offers none of the comedic sparkle they recently showed on Saturday Night Live and David Letterman's show. It's only slightly better than the surprisingly flat and one-dimensional Hannah Montana movie." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

U2 3D (2007)

"U2 3D doesn't make you feel like you're there in the crowd. It makes you feel like you're floating above the fans and riding their energy wave like a surfer during hurricane season." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

American Hardcore (2006)

"Leaves little doubt that this truly was one of the wildest eras in rock." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Idlewild (2006)

"As unlikely as it seems that the music segments would be the weakest parts of Idlewild, however, it's just as surprising that the rest of the movie stands up pretty well." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Dig! (2004)

"In a year that has seen several fascinating documentaries on famous rock stars and their problems, Dig! stands out for being about musicians who only think they should be famous. And, man, do they have problems." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones (2004)

"Chronicles their 30-year history in a style befitting the band: bare-bones, frank, nonsensationalized and adamantly unsentimental." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Metallica: Some Kind of Monster (2004)

"Fans of the band will love the revealing footage, especially landmark moments such as bassist auditions (more famous names showed up than the one they picked) and encounters with the ex-Metallica members (Newsted and Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine)." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

"It's dreadfully boring." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune

Tupac: Resurrection (2003)

"This poignant, albeit overly poetic documentary claims to capture the slain actor/rapper 'in his own words.' That aspect of it doesn't totally work, but plenty else does." ‐ Minneapolis Star Tribune
