  • Pic as a whole is well-crafted and compelling.

  • [It's] about the painstaking process behind what seems so off-the-cuff.

  • Daniel Kraus's Musician feels radically fresh: It simply observes its title character in the manner of a 1960s fly-on-the-wall documentary.

    September 5, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • A fairly pure work, or what Werner Herzog would dismiss as 'an accountant's truth.' The 'truth' is that touring isn't all that glamorous, and neither is watching Vandermark return calls, schedule gigs, eat fast food, and check in/out of hotels.

    September 4, 2007 | Full Review…
  • A fascinating documentary made memorable not by its music but by its poignant portrait of a likable, if narrowly-focused, purist unwilling to compromise his values, regardless of its cost in terms of fame or his career.

    September 7, 2007 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Seriously off-key and out-of-tune.

    September 5, 2007 | Rating: 0.5/5
