82% Milford Graves Full Mantis (2018) The overall lack of context and information may leave the uninitiated adrift. But what an adventure awaits those bold enough to enter the film's esoteric realm.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

97% Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda (2018) Philosophical insights as well as footage of Sakamoto's far-flung field-recording trips, his love for Andrei Tarkovsky's work, and him scoring films for impulsive directors reveal an ingenious musician still questing for new ideas.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

80% We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! (2016) If one sign of a great music documentary is to sway people who are apathetic toward the subject to care about it, then Andrew Horn's We Are Twisted F***ing Sister! probably fails.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

89% Dig! (2004) As tempest-in-a-teapot music documentaries go, Dig! is entertaining-especially if you like the good psychedelic-rock groups Brian Jonestown Massacre and/or the Dandy Warhols.‐ The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
