Critic Reviews

  1. You don't have to be a Phishead to enjoy Bittersweet Motel.
  2. Clearly Phish's appeal is fundamentally experiential, and the experience doesn't lend itself to being captured on film.
  3. Philadelphia Inquirer
    Reviewed by: Dan DeLuca
    It falls short of its tie-dye target.
  4. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    Well-made if not particularly insightful docu should be catnip to Phishheads, while the previously unconverted are likely to stay that way.
  5. There are just enough revelatory moments to recommend the movie.
  6. Chicago Tribune
    Reviewed by: Greg Kot
    A documentary that will likely leave Phish diehards hankering for more, and everybody else still wondering what all the fuss is about.
  7. A film without a framework, without a skeleton--a Phish philet, if you will.
  8. 40
    None of these guys has much interesting to say.
  9. Never really gets across the essence of who the band members are and why they inspire such fidelity.
