"A compassionate but not uncritical portrait of an artist whose creativity and vulnerability were inseparable from the political distemper of his era." - Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail 

"At once an unsentimental portrait of the ambitious singer who thought himself bound for glory, and an affecting elegy for a time when song was a form of revolution." - Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
