Village Voice
A beautiful tale of life, love, music, and family, of things not working out but also working out just as predicted. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
And then would come this generous, spirited documentary, to capture one of the strangest and most inspiring of all family stories of tragedy and triumph that this crazy country has produced. Full Review
Drew Hunt
Slant Magazine
The film is made impetuously watchable and disarmingly emotional by the filmmakers' strong command of docudrama and nonfiction narrative style. Full Review
Eric Kohn
A Band Called Death lacks the thrill of mystery but makes up for it with pathos. Full Review
Joshua Rothkopf
Time Out New York
Too much of the doc takes our taste for granted; Alice Cooper, Henry Rollins and others won’t persuade you that Death could have been huge, nor does a clichéd last-act reunion show. But the film’s alternating inquiry — into family love, slow compromise and, yes, death — resonates strongly. Full Review
