  1. It's the most uplifting movie of a numbing year -- a feel-good film full of songs about feeling god-awful.
  2. The music, it goes without saying, is great.
  3. For fans of this kind of roots music, it was an event you would have given anything to attend. Down From the Mountain lets you do that and gives you terrific seats in the bargain.

    A delightful concert documentary that proves once more what a neglected masterpiece the Coen Brothers gave us last year in their Depression chain-gang odyssey, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
  5. Good music stands alone, and the documentary is jaunty fun.
  6. Bluegrass fans should have few complaints about this stellar concert film.

    If bluegrass were as static and dull as this concert film indicates, Nashville would have hustled all the hillbillies back to the Smokies long ago.

    I hadn't seen O Brother, and I wasn't a huge Bluegrass fan, and then I saw this concert movie (filmed **before** O Brother was I hadn't seen O Brother, and I wasn't a huge Bluegrass fan, and then I saw this concert movie (filmed **before** O Brother was released!) , and was converted for life. Some viewers will find it flat; others will have their socks knocked off. Expand
