Critic Reviews for Six By Sondheim

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (12)

  • Lapine's direction is almost the star of Six by Sondheim. Not only has he used the six songs to illuminate the composer's life, he organizes years and years of interviews as if they are an ongoing conversation - which, in many ways, they are.

    December 9, 2013 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Six by Sondheim's awareness of its own design is unobtrusively embedded beneath every moment of the film, like a refrain buried so deep in a musical's score that the ear doesn't register it until the final curtain.

  • Six is tour of his past, with special emphasis on a half-dozen tunes.

    December 9, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite the music in James Lapine's documentary, Six By Sondheim, it is archival clips of Mr. Sondheim describing how he writes that make the film a treasure.

  • It's always challenging to capture the essence of such artistry on film, and Lapine comes pretty close.
