GUEST,Ron Olesko A Mighty Wind on DVD (77* d) RE: A Mighty Wind on DVD 22 Sep 03


Incidently, the cast of A Mighty Wind is in the middle of tour. This past Saturday night they performed two shows at the REAL Town Hall in NYC. Unfortunately I had a prior engagement, but I do know a few people who went and gave it a rave review. The entire cast (with the exception of Fred Willard) appeared and performed in character.

There seems to be divided opinion about the film, as is the case with most movies.   From what I've gathered, the people who were disapointed SEEM to be hardcore folkies who were expecting more "in" jokes or people who were expecting the film to be another Spinal Tap. The latter is a bit unfair since Spinal Tap really was the among the first in the musical mockumentary genre. It is very hard to repeat such a classic.    Another group of "dissenters" seem to miss(or don't care for) the subtle humor in the songs.   I found them to be hysterical, but if you were expecting the in-your-face style of a Tom Lehrer, look elsewhere.

Pop some corn, sit back, and enjoy the DVD for what it is - a fun comedy.
