WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE BEEN SAYING . . .

 

1/8/11  This beautifully shot, edited and directed film shows the tearing of the wall beetween the audience and the stage and the extremely direct, almost aggressive challenging of the crowd to go beyond the rock'n'roll ritual and make it their own. When the gig is over, these passionate, dedicated, beastly, tenacious and heartfelt, honest guys put the stage, backstage and beds in order and clean up the toilet. Captured scenes are challenging the standard rock documentary form, since they don't perpetuate the myth of a rocker. This is no reality show. It is the real thing.

12/7/11  In his directorial debut, Marty Moynihan has rightfully captured the true, sweaty and idealistic spirit of rock'n'roll, the spirit that will jump right out of the screen at this year's Grossmann!

5/3/11  The real success of this documentary is showing the brutal reality of the low cost 'underground' rock scene.   Rock'n'roll is for most of us a virus, regardless of fame, money or the lack of it.

3/2/11  It's amazing to watch the fortitude of the Hick in action, I've never seen any  band conquer such highs and lows on the smell of an oily  rag.   'Notes from the Underground'  is a must see cinematic experience.  This is a movie young bands can learn by.

1/11/10   '6ft Hick: Notes from the Underground, I anticipate will be one of the most talked about films of the 2010 BIFF.'
