Critic Reviews for Great World of Sound
Craig Zobel's soul-crushing docudrama slums in the real rags-to-rags tragedy of the lowest rung of the music industry.
Zobel ultimately comes down on the side of the suckers, whose need to make music -- even bad music -- gives them an unimpeachable dignity
A confident, sure-handed exercise focusing on the American Dream, turned nightmare.
Anyone who has enjoyed laughing at the bad singers auditioning on American Idol, consider the independent film Great World of Sound your penance.
Audience Reviews for Great World of Sound
The debut feature of "Compliance" director Craig Zobel is an enjoyable little indie concerning the moral dilemma of taking an unethical job in these grim economic times. Pat Healy and Kene Holliday are great as two "record producers" whose job is to sign up musicians under the false pretence that they will launch their career.
Not a bad flick, but I'm not convinced the story is worth telling at all, but if it is. It would take about 10-20 minutes to tell it. It seems paded. Looks like an idea Christopher Guest turned down.
All musicians and songwriters need to see this movie. It's absolutely devastating. Kudos to Craig Zobel for addressing a very real and heartbreaking attack on the arts.
