Brattle Film Notes: ‘The Shop Around the Corner’

Reviews for ‘Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten: Cambodia’s Lost Rock and Roll’

DON'T THINK I'VE FORGOTTEN“Remarkable… the footage is a revelation.” – James Reed, Boston Globe

“Triumphs as both an objective record and a poetic lament: It’s a film that’s every bit as entrancing and haunting as the lost music it celebrates.” – Jason Heller, AV Club

NYTimes Critics’ Pick “A rich and defiant effort at recovery.” – A. O. Scott, New York Times

“The first two-thirds of Don’t Think I’ve Forgotten is a pure and joyous celebration of the music. The last third is an avowal of just how potent rock ‘n’ roll can be.” – Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

“That the documentary exists at all is a triumph.” – Jason Newman, Rolling Stone  More »

Reviews for ‘Charlie’s Country’

David Gulpilil in CHARLIE'S COUNTRY • Exclusive Area Premiere July 17–19

“Australia offers few sights as sublime as that of David Gulpilil.” – Peter Keough, Boston Globe

“A work of humane and tender genius.” – Rowan Righelato, The Guardian

“Equal parts ethnographic and poetic, this eloquent drama’s stirring soulfulness is laced with the sorrow of cultural dislocation but also with lovely ripples of humor and even joy.” – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter  More »

Reviews for ‘Revenge of the Mekons’


(3½ of 4 stars) “Above all, the movie celebrates a band that half-heartedly tried to be rock stars and became people instead, singing people’s music with the fervor and affection of companions together as night gathers and closing time nears.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“The Mekons represent every musically curious and adventurous group that matures without calcifying, or falling apart.” – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

“The film’s strength lies in just how far it’s willing to go-and to not go-in the pursuit of mythologizing its subject, a group of aging but unrepentant punks who treat the very idea of mythology like a bad joke.” – Jason Heller, AV Club  More »
