Critic Reviews for Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune
"Phil Ochs" not only is a good look at a man who carved a small but important niche into the folk world but a good record of the turbulent 1960s and what motivated its protesters.
The short and tragic life of Phil Ochs is as involving as the music he wrote and played, and that is saying a great deal.
A compassionate but not uncritical portrait of an artist whose creativity and vulnerability were inseparable from the political distemper of his era.
At once an unsentimental portrait of the ambitious singer who thought himself bound for glory, and an affecting elegy for a time when song was a form of revolution.
Not only a biography but also a running history of the period's left-wing activism, replete with film clips of that decade's tragic events.
