  • The contemporary music sequences are a distraction from the heart of the movie: truly astounding archival footage of speeches, marches, and demonstrations.

  • Through vivid archival material and voice-overs, the filmmakers create moving vignettes that, taken together, form a fascinating primer on nonviolence as a political force and discipline.

  • Soundtrack may very well be the finest, broad history on film of the Southern Freedom Movement years as measured from the Montgomery bus boycott (beginning in 1955) to the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1968).

  • An elegantly crafted new documentary.

  • Tthe film is primarily interested in the music that accompanied this turmoil, which is a bit like covering the American Revolution with the focus on the wigs Washington and Jefferson wore.

    Jan 22, 2010 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Essentially a condensed, lightly airbrushed, skillfully assembled history of the civil rights movement, with musical interludes.

    Jan 22, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5
