Critic Reviews for Danielson: A Family Movie

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (4)

  • Aronson's film is a fond portrait, loaded with bizarre, haunting music and Smith's off-kilter inspirations.

  • What Danielson doesn't do enough of is reveal [Daniel] Smith's music on its own terms.

    December 15, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • J L Aronson's documentary is about Daniel Smith, a musician who performs Christian music that is a world away from most of what is heard under that label.

    December 14, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/5
  • There is an undeniable quirky appeal to the creative world of Daniel Smith, though those who hope a behind-the-scenes look will explain his motivation or personality won't find the enigma resolved here.

  • ... it's hard to imagine anyone not in the actual family (or at least the presold family of fans) being interested enough to stick it out for the entire hour and 45 minutes.

    January 21, 2007
  • Shot on digital and layered with animated segments, performance footage and clips from Smith family home movies, Family Movie unfolds with a gentle, justified confidence in the power of its subject.
