    It was an excellent documentary - very moving. Phil Ochs the musician - his voice, the music portraying the times so accurately - the courage of being more up front than the other singer/musicians of the 60's --- it's also stunning how little has changed and how relevant his words ring true today.

    Phil Ochs was a pivotal personality in my life and it was through his songs and thoughts that I shaped many of my attitudes on life and life in America. This film assembled his life as never before and helped me understand him as a person more than ever. Unfortunately, with its limited release its audience will tend to be Phil's followers, rather than the millions that should know about him and his time and presence . I guess a feature film is the only way to achieve an informed public.
