5 stars in my book. Outstanding documentary. Muscle Shoals must be included with Detroit, Memphis, Philly, Chess in Chicago and Jackson, MS. Great musicians making great music. This movie should be in more theatres.

Wow!! What a film. \"Muscle Shoals\" is the embodiment of great documentary film-making. Informative, insightful story telling, combined with a visually stunning cinematography...practically every frame a work-of-art. 5-STARS in my book.

With such great music coming, one hit after after another, it's always a joy to watch. Full Review

Greg "Freddy" Camalier's engaging new doc Muscle Shoals stands as a winning tribute to the coastal Alabama studio, musicians, and engineers who laid down some of the greatest pop tracks of the late '60s and early '70s. Full Review

Although the intriguingly named first-time director Greg “Freddy” Camalier makes the twice-told tales of the film’s second hour watchable, they end up paling in comparison to its essayistic first half. Full Review

After we hear the hit parade that poured from rural Alabama and meet the men who led it to the top of the charts, we realize that Muscle Shoals could call itself Hitsville, USA. Full Review

A trove of great stills and movie footage accompanies the colorful anecdotes, but the film's most consistent pleasure is the way interviewees recall the moments before the tape rolled on an immortal recording. Full Review
