Just saw this film today at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and it is a huge hit. Definitely will be in the Best of Fest. Wonderful music, story, and Danny Glover is great and this film should be one of the best films of 2008. FOUR STARSStuart Goldfine

The result is one of Sayles' best films. The music, a mix of blues, seminal rock and newcomer Gary Clark Jr.'s performance, will be an obvious draw, as will the performances by some leading African-American actors. Full Review

Trudging nobly under a mantle of impeccably earnest intentions and a fussy, too-quaint-by-half production design, Honeydripper lags and drags to its utterly predictable end. There's not a spark of spontaneity or soul about it. Full Review

In its first half, Honeydripper trickles. In its second, it really flows. Full Review

With Honeydripper, Sayles has done what he always does: bring together a group of characters and allow us to relish their interaction. His affection for the characters is both obvious and infectious. We like them, warts and all. Full Review
