    Richly satisfying both as subversive, music-biz primer and as gritty, true-life underdog story.
  2. Equally compelling and depressing.
  3. A valuable cautionary tale that serves as a handy correlative to the many fictional films in which the biggest problems depicted about the music biz are the pitfalls of having too much drugs and sex.
  4. 70
    Mr. Kelemer captures the sad textures of the Rogala brothers' lives with an appropriate balance of sympathy and detachment.
  5. 63
    Kelemer doesn't offer anything that hasn't been done before in documentaries of this type. Still, Won't Anybody Listen makes for interesting viewing as a study of true-life underdogs.
  6. Beautifully edited and, appropriately, the sound is unusually well recorded and produced.
