An interesting look at a brilliant performer
22 December 2001 | by (New York, NY, USA) – See all my reviews

Phil Ochs was one of the most brilliant musicians of his generation, and if his politics hadn't got him blackballed by the Establishment and most of the music industry, he could have gone a long way. Any film about him would, just by virtue of having the courage to take on this complex figure, be interesting--but this one is particularly good because of the attention given to detail.
