Critic Reviews for Alive Inside
Music here seems to have a miraculous power to lift up, to awaken, to reinvigorate.
I would have preferred a documentary that did more presenting and less pushing. But...the music's vivifying effect on old souls made for some of the most moving scenes I've seen all year.
The movie effectively bullies you into feeling good; with its hard sell and superfluous CG imagery, it might as well be a superhero movie.
The movie is at its best when documenting the reactions of various patients, which in some cases is nearly miraculous.
Alive Inside is a small but vibrant miracle. The documentary finds hope and joy in one of our nation's bleakest settings, nursing homes.
Audience Reviews for Alive Inside
A fascinating and powerful documentary that should inspire emotions through viewers. It loses focus at times, but gets its message across, and succeeded in lifting my mood. Verdict: B+
feel good movie that I'm surprised is at 73% considering its criticproofness. The filmmakers keep saying there is some sort of therapy in this music, and i understand it makes them feel better for a small time but it doesn't improve anything. Its a little anti rest home but doesn't make it seem that bad and doesn't try to hard.
A documentary about what it means to get older in our society and what could be done to change things.
