Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
71% Sun Ra: Space Is the Place (1974) It's standard blaxploitation settings and elements -- crime fighters and criminals, pimps and hookers, a pool hall and a brothel -- but the presence of the Outer Space Employment Agency makes it extraordinary. ‐ Variety

94% My Name Is Albert Ayler (2008) Brings a sense of logic and humanity to a man whose music was as unsettling as it was untethered to the tenets of jazz. ‐ Variety
Posted Mar 5, 2008
43% What We Do Is Secret (2007) A highly personal take on the ins and outs of creating and maintaining a band. ‐ Variety

88% Dixie Chicks - Shut Up and Sing (2006) It's the rare thorough documentary on a musical act whose dilemmas are faced in the here and now, one that should win over fans of the Chicks on the fence and of music docus and perhaps create a little cultural stir as well. ‐ Variety

100% Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film (2006) Blessed with all the trademarks of a Burns brothers documentary, Ric Burns' look at the life of Andy Warhol is well researched, packed with rarely seen footage and loaded with eloquent observations. ‐ Variety

77% The U.S. vs. John Lennon (2006) The storyline follows the Ono-approved bio that posits Lennon as saint, excising his dark periods and their years apart, which could have enhanced the portrait. ‐ Variety
Posted Aug 31, 2006
30% Herbie Hancock: Possibilities (2006) Possibilities will likely draw in only the most hardcore of Hancock's fans. ‐ Variety
Posted Apr 11, 2006
93% No Direction Home: Bob Dylan (2005) A document that will satiate Dylan fans over repeated viewings and should bring naysayers into the Dylan fold. ‐ Variety
Posted Sep 12, 2005
79% American Experience (2004) Smartly directed by Pat Paulson and Michael John Warren and nicely lensed, the material sufficiently establishes the rarefied air Jay-Z occupies. ‐ Variety
