Music Reviews

eight-days-a-weekThis page contains links to my reviews of films with a musical element. The movies could be biographies of musicians or bands, examinations of particular songs or music movements, or simply concert films. Most are documentaries, but you’ll find a couple of narrative-fiction films here too. You will also find my lone recent review of a live music event. (And, on a personal note, while I’m obviously passionate about film, you likely won’t find a bigger Beatles fan.)
