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

June 29, 2013
Warm and poignant, but with excessive use of concert footage and lack of insight/intrigue. Strictly for avid fans of Kate McGarrigle. Just listening to the soundtrack might be more rewarding and satisfying.

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.

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.
