A film that's lovely to hear, though not much to look at.
The music is grand, the performances are direct and Down From the Mountain is unpretentious in its presentation of both.
In her performances and asides to the documentarians, it is Welch who best articulates why this music is so moving.
Like the old-timey music that inspired it, Down From the Mountain is sweet, serene and utterly unconcerned with polish.
A tender tribute to Hartford's spirit, and to the enduring value of the plaintive and celebratory music that emerged from this country's farm fields and front porches and backwoods churches.
The whole experience is wonderful -- and this is a film to own on videotape, since you'll probably want to play these songs again and again.
A beautifully done record of a very unusual event - and one that inadvertently serves as a testament to John Hartford, making it a very special document of musical history.
Now if you're looking for an in-depth study of the music, look elsewhere. This movie is strictly about the one event [a benefit concert (for the Country Music Hall of Fame 2001)].
Feels glossed over and incomplete.
Has the ease of a casual get-together by musicians who enjoy jamming with each other and who give us the privilege to sit there and listen and watch.
Hardly a groundbreaking concert movie, but it's a creditably agreeable one.
A Polaroid sprung to life.
A very enjoyable concert film and a must see for any fan of O Brother, Where Art Thou?.
