Demme keeps finding something new and unusual to shoot, fascinated by the minutiae and peripheries of a major showbiz endeavor.
A chronicle of a man giving his absolute all to entertain those who pay to see him.
If nothing else, this loving concert doc makes a compelling case for the musicianship, artistry, and sheer athleticism of pop music.
Demme proves he's still a wily master of the craft, and the director's work here makes this more than just a fans-only proposition.
...Timberlake hardly pauses for a rest, and most importantly makes you believe he doesn't want to
This year's most unexpected joy. I've watched it three times now and I don't even particularly like Justin Timberlake's music.
Superb concert film has some cursing, provocative songs.
A joyous experience and proof, if any was needed, that Demme and Timberlake are still at the top of their game.
Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids, despite being Demme's most extravagant performance film, is also a deceptively intimate portrait of a well-oiled musical machine.
Certainly it's possible that a live JT concert would entertain. But can this special achieve anything more? Oh, yes.
[Demme] is the man behind the classic Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense... Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids is entirely worthy of that gold standard.
Perhaps the stakes are too low to really criticize a project that generally works well enough on its own terms.
