No current Talk conversations about this book.
2021 movie #158. 2003. Mockumentary about those great bands from the '60s folk revival, like The Folksmen, The New Main Street Singers and Mitch and Mickey. Pretty entertaining and funny but with a love of the subject matter. ( )
A Mighty Wind makes me laugh every time I watch it and it must be watched. Part of what makes me laugh is the perfectly normal sounding part of the "documentary" juxtaposed with something wince-worthy. This was actually my introduction to the mockumentary genre and I fell in love with it.
I think part of the movie's attraction is its attention to detail. The album covers featured look like they were created during the appropriate time period. Even the songs and musical styles sound right. (Yes, I bought the CD and the songs blend easily into my other folk music songs.)
I also loved the extras. The deleted scenes are funny, but the jewels are the TV episodes and the PBN recording. They are spot on. Do take the time to watch them.
If you like folk music and have a sense of humor about it or if you enjoy good comedy, I think you'll like the movie.
Has as a reference guide/companion
