Critic Reviews for Enzo Avitabile Music Life

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

"Enzo Avitabile Music Life" succeeds at conveying one-quarter of its title.

November 26, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Demme has not given us an expansive film, and there are spots you wish he'd dug deeper. But there is such a well of emotion that the music alone is almost enough.

The film feels like a first draft. But then there is the music to celebrate ...

October 18, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The fuzziness of Mr. Avitabile's sentiments on boundary-blind unity is echoed in the movie's slack, tag-along portraiture.

October 17, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Features enough music to be worthwhile for fans and curious newcomers, but it's a snooze whenever Avitabile doesn't have an instrument in his hand or a microphone in front of his face.

October 17, 2013 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Demme has crafted yet another superb document of musicians at work, one as much about creation-and the sources of inspiration-as it is about performance.
