All Critics (20) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (1)

  • irector Jim Brown tells the story well even if he refuses to address any of the singer's missteps (such as becoming infuriated when Dylan first plugged in at the Newport Folk Festival).

    January 18, 2008 | Full Review…
  • A stirring, revelatory film, which captures Seeger as the media-age Johnny Appleseed of folk.

    November 7, 2007 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • Fans like Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan express unvarnished awe, but it's the well-told arc of Seeger's life that makes the strongest impression, as director Jim Brown takes us from the highs to the lows and back up again.

    October 26, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • As the loving documentary, Pete Seeger: The Power of Song, makes clear, Pete Seeger is still busy, still angry, still hopeful, still singing.

    October 26, 2007 | Rating: 4.5/5
  • Pete Seeger: The Power of Song could have been called Pete Seeger: The First Punk. As the film traces the singer's long life, it also, inevitably, tracks the evolution of American countercultures through much of the 20th century.

  • Shallow, very officially sanctioned, and overly compressed.
