a masterpiece
10 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a film that one is not likely to hear about from the media or music press. However, Phil Ochs was the prototype (without him, there would have been no Dylan), who actually lived his beliefs. He was in the streets opposing the war and standing for social change. Ochs sang beautifully and with sincerity. This film was excellent by providing as reflective a picture as possible. Filming scenes in the real Folk City club in Greenwich Village and finding an actor who could sing and speak like Phil resulted in a fantastic release. This film deserves to become widely available worldwide. The late Phil Ochs left a legacy that warrants permanent access and appreciation. This film is one of the best offerings. Rev. Bookburn, Radio Volta, Philadelphia
