Maxine Trump's feature loses focus as it progresses, though its insights into guitar making, forestry harvesting and environmental shortages resonate strongly.
This compelling, eco-themed documentary will be of vital interest to anyone who loves acoustic guitars.
Even if you can't tell the difference between a soundboard and a fretboard, "Musicwood" will hold your attention.
A riveting tale of environmental crisis and industrial conflict with a commitment to depth and a musical cadence.
As a visibly agitated Greenpeace activist puts it, "the only thing that f***ing matters is the forest" and that, you feel, is the crux of it.
Musicwood is a great looking documentary; the cinematography in this one is breath-taking and even the simplest of talking heads segments look good.
A lyrical film, with evocative cinematography and emotive yet insightful interviews, Musicwood carries its tune well and is well worth seeking out.
Why preserving the Martin guitar is as important in the long run as saving the spotted owl or the snail darter.
A pointed look at the relationship between art and commerce that brings acoustic-guitar manufacturers and logging corporations to a crossroads, if not an outright impasse.
An excellent and entertaining documentary.
There is widespread concern for human rights and animal rights of every stripe, but after seeing Musicwood, I am now a firm believer in plant rights.
The forests are breathtaking. So is the sincerity of musicians such as Steve Earle, who waxes poetic about the glories of what emanates from acoustic guitars. These aren't tree-huggers, they're tree-players.
