Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul

Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul

It's not the expected thing for a documentary on Turkish music to open with a quote from Confucius, but that is not the only fascinating surprise that Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul has to offer. The latest film by Fatih Akin, who directed the exceptional Head-On, turns out to be a...

Before the Music Dies (B4MD)

Before the Music Dies (B4MD)

Ever since MTV arrived in our living rooms, there has been an inordinate amount of emphasis on beauty and youth and appearance - none of which enters our consciousness through our ears. Never have so few companies controlled so much of the music played on the radio and for sale at retail...

The Future Is Unwritten

The Future Is Unwritten

When the Clash was labeled "The Only Band That Matters," it may have been record company hype, but when I was a teenager, there was probably no band that mattered more to me. The idealism, the earnest anger, the democratic, sometimes clumsy way of mixing styles and...

Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who

Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who

Like that of a lasting marriage, the story of a long-established rock band is necessarily laden with drama. The Who, now in their fifth decade, have had their share and more -- almost, it seems, from Day One of their existence. Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who takes us through a tale of...

Elvis: That's the Way It Is

Elvis - That’s the Way It Is

In 1970, Elvis Presley seemed stalled on the comeback treadmill: Not quite part of the rock 'n' roll scene that was then dominated by the Beatles and Rolling Stones, nor part of the burgeoning '50s revival movement. He was a man who needed to do it his way, and his 1970 tour of duty in the Las...

Mad Hot Ballroom

Mad Hot Ballroom

Mad Hot Ballroom is the new Spellbound, a thoroughly charming, uplifting, and inspiring documentary that celebrates youthful perseverance. In contrast to the pressure-cooker setting of the national spelling bee, though, filmmakers Marilyn Agrelo and Amy Sewell chronicle the annual fifth-grade...

Shut Up and Sing

Shut Up & Sing

This Chicks flick by Barbara Kopple (Academy Award winner for Harlan County, U.S.A.) and Cecilia Peck is powerful testament to the inconvenient truth that free speech can come at a very high cost. The Dixie Chicks, Texas-based and one of country music's most successful acts, found out just how...

A Hard Day's Night

A Hard Day’s Night

Very little needs to be said about this trend-setting 1964 classic: Simply put, A Hard Day's Night is the finest rock 'n' roll comedy ever made. It hit America shortly after the Beatles themselves did, and with the Fab Four as popular as they were, Stateside audiences would've been happy just...
