  • Summary: There is a raging Wizard Rock scene in this country, and I had no idea until watching the film We Are Wizards. The documentary profiles some of the power players in the underground Harry Potter creative community. I'm not talking sinister meetings in the woods about the Dark Arts.

The documentary profiles some of the power players in the underground Harry Potter creative community. I'm not talking sinister meetings in the woods about the Dark Arts. Instead, the film offers us a seven-year-old rock star and his teen pop idols, hilarious audio-commentary set to the movie and online creative writing sites waging war with corporate agents.

  1. This charm-filled documentary about passionate Harry Potter fans (and one foe) leaps all over the place.
  2. 80
    We Are Wizards is a nifty look at a few small but significant slices of Potter mania that evokes interest rather than provoking disdain, not always an easy feat.
  3. 70
    It's highly enjoyable even if (like me) you're not much of a Potterphile.

    Ignore the scattershot approach, however, and there's considerable pleasure to be had in spending time with these bizarre enthusiasts and watching the creative ways they find to express their obsessions.
  5. A fun project that doesn't quite reach its potential, Josh Koury's doc is still worthwhile for anyone who can't wait until 2009 to see Harry Potter back on the big screen.

    Meandering mindlessly, Wizards comes off as yet another humdrum Pottery artifact.
  7. 50
    Mostly We Are Wizards is a loving, if flawed, tribute to creativity and artistic freedom.
