Movie Info

On Aug. 4, 2004, Jason Crigler, one of New York City's most sought-after guitarists, suffered a brain hemorrhage during a concert in Manhattan. He was rushed to the hospital where doctors told Jason's family--if he makes it through the night, there won't be much left of him. But, Jason's pregnant wife and the rest of his family refused to accept the dire prognosis. Convinced that beneath his unresponsive eyes Jason was "in there," his family mounted an intensive and intimate course of rehabilitation that would eventually force Jason's doctors--who were sure that he would live out his days in a nursing home--to reconsider the factors and forces that inspire recovery. "Life. Support. Music." chronicles Jason's powerful and unusual story, explores the nature of hope, faith and healing, and proves that "family" may be the strongest material in the universe.

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

Perhaps the film should be called Life. Support. Music. Pretension.

Top Critic

If you can get past the excruciating title, Life. Support. Music. is a blessedly nimble journey from loss to reclamation.

Top Critic

Watching Crigler go from likable, ax-wielding guy to a prone figure who can't even close his mouth, and then his eventual return to the stage, is inspiring, and reaffirms our belief in the healing power of rock & roll.

Time Out
Top Critic

As in Metzgar's Chances of the World Changing and his recent Reporter, the helmer's quiet narration and sharp focus grant his subjects a matter-of-fact dignity.

Top Critic

Eric Daniel Metzgar has made a not-very-good movie marked by his consistent inability to let the material speak for itself.

A mostly touching, inspirational and engrossing documentary.
