Critic Reviews for Sing Me the Songs That Say I Love You: A Concert for Kate McGarrigle

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (6)

Rufus and Martha Wainwright host an all-star tribute concert for their late mother, folk singer Kate McGarrigle, in this old-fashioned but engrossing rock-doc .

Nov 19, 2013 | Full Review…

There's virtually no biographical content. The songs stick very much to one plaintive folk-pop style, and if that is not your passion, the flood of concert footage becomes wearing fairly early on.

Jun 28, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The film is both celebration and elegy, a sing-along and a cry-along, a cathartic moan and a perfect bliss-out.

More frustrating than the film's inability to impart a full-bodied portrait of its subject ... is a more general directorial ordinariness.

As a musical experience, it is generous and moving. But as a documentary, "Sing Me the Songs" is an awkward hybrid of concert film and rock-star biography.

Jun 25, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5

Given that the entire show and film is dedicated to McGarrigle, you wish this exquisitely made, undeniably moving family album featured even more of the singer herself.
