Slant Magazine
It does lightly suggest scintillating questions about the responsibility artists have in reflecting current political moments in their music. Full Review
Eric Hynes
Time Out New York
Time and changing tides have been kind to Graceland (and to the local musicians who've since become internationally renowned), but an on-camera meeting between the songwriter and ANC leader Oliver Tambo finds their conflict between creative freedom and revolutionary solidarity fascinatingly unresolved. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
Director Joe Berlinger mixes archival footage, concert scenes, interviews and present-day reunions to meld a harmonious, fair-minded, energetic and enlightening portrait of one masterpiece's moment in time. Full Review
John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
A pure-bliss celebration of Paul Simon's landmark album Graceland coupled with an interesting if not unbiased look at the controversy surrounding its release. Full Review
Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor
The result is doubly satisfying: We get not only a trenchant political drama but a bang-up concert film as well. Full Review
