a little bit of a disappointment, 28 March 2006
Author: fnorful from United States

This hillbilly study is reasonably good, but suffers from being too narrow a view of the culture and the music. I love the occasional folk performer and have been to folk festivals, but this had way too much religion for my taste and not enough musical variety.

There are a few nice performances, and certainly a fair amount of heart and sincerity. More insights into the history could have been given, not just the verbal accounts of the central characters.

In a documentary it's always a balance of presenting an even view versus a biased one. It's easy to be unbiased if you simply don't tell much of a story, if the camera is just along for the ride. It's where many documenters start; I hope Minnich brings more to the screen in his next effort.
