    It's humor may be a little too slow and dry for some, but the lovable characters, infectious music, and entertaining use of mockumentary format make "A Mighty Wind" worth a glance.

    Folk legend dies, siblings arrange tribute concert bringing back lost legends of folk.
    Brilliant mockumentary with Christopher Guest & his regular cast. It was good to see Guest, McLean & Shearer back together as they bounce off each other so well & the fact that it's mainly improvised makes it funnier.
    Eugene Levy & Catherine O'Hara are great too playing a sort of folk version of Sonny &
    Cher with Levy returning as a severely damaged man.
    If you love Guest's other work then this is as good as anything else he's done.

    More of a warm breeze than a great gust, but its simple, smart pleasures carry the force of a hurricane.
  2. Achingly funny movie...Guest has cultivated a stock company of players whose work together is so intuitively sharp that it seems to redefine the boundaries of acting.

    The film's heart and soul belong to O'Hara and to Levy, whose folk-music burnout has the shell-shocked expression of someone who's been to hell and never quite made it back.
