| Surprisingly good
Gritty, great crowd shots, remarkable music, authentic characters. This is what the middle of the night is for: finds like this movie. Birmin'AlabamaHam just one of the musical treats. Hard to watch some scenes, but this view of America "behind the scenes" is unusual and loaded with great color, genuine dialogue and wonderful road trip post card view of America that's not mainstream or middle class, but working and driving and the same kind of self-reflection you might find in a movie like Metropolitan only on the road in a half- empty stadium in Talahassee. Different authors quoted, different food eaten, different "coifs", the furniture the back seat of a 64 station wagon instead of a penthouse, but every bit as rich and full. I am wowed.
