Critic Reviews for Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (33) | Rotten (2)

  • Director Mary Wharton's notion is to portray the aw-shucks politician's embrace of rock music as a sign that Carter was open to fresh ideas, younger generations and strange new aromas.

  • "Jimmy Carter Rock & Roll President" is more of a side-dish to his legacy than the feature-length format can sustain.

  • Even more than the music itself, or Carter's passion for it, this alertness to sharedness is what ultimately makes the film moving as well as so pleasurable.

    September 11, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Rock & Roll President" is a potent and poignant reminder of how some things used to be and may never be again.

    September 10, 2020 | Full Review…
  • A fun soulful documentary that's rarely ever invasive, depicting the type of statesman we're sorely missing today.

    September 9, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Watching "Jimmy Carter Rock & Roll President," it's hard not to be stirred by the testimonials, from people like Dylan and Nelson and Bono, to Carter's fine-grained humanity.
