This is what Democracy looks Like !

Both book and documentary are balanced. The only incentive of both Jimmy Carter and Jonathan Demme is to get an honest and balanced picture out there, concerning Palestine! It is about time! Only people who fear the truth will disparage their efforts.KFB

This album is the finest work I have ever heard from an instrumentalist of John's caliber. After having met him and some of his musician's it is clear that his gift of music is God given and the deepest part of his soul. Truly a blessing mixing the different parts of the world and bringing them all together. Truly enchanting.

This disgrace of an x-president needs to go back to his peanuts and shut up.

The movie doesn't offer much new to anyone familiar with Carter. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Though not exactly a valentine to the octogenarian Nobel Peace Prize winner, the film is a lovingly rendered, candid and intimate portrait. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
Uncritical, but not unaffecting. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
This narrowly cast documentary focuses so exclusively on a publicity tour the former president took in the closing months of 2006 that a more accurate title might be "Jimmy Carter How I Sold My Book." Full Review

Man From Plains isn't about engagement; it's about disengagement from Mr. Carter's critics and his more provocative beliefs. It's also about legacy building. Full Review
