It feels like something much bigger than the film itself comes entirely together: four men on a stage, being musicians, being Indians, being Americans, playing rock 'n' roll.

Ssolid if conventional.

It's all very convincing, if a bit repetitious. Still the musical excerpts - especially Wray's - are great, and the history is something of an overdue revelation.

What we have here is less an exploration of personal artistry than an entry-level history lesson.

September 1, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Inevitably cursory, it's nonetheless a fascinating introduction to the ways that core components of Americana wouldn't be eradicated. Or silenced.

"Rumble" asks us to be still for a moment and to listen to the heartbeat - at once familiar and newly strange - that pumps the lifeblood that flows through the songs this country is known for.
