A Mighty Wind

posted by Jason Kottke   May 28, 2003

Guest’s latest mockumentary is probably the strongest film of the bunch that includes Best in Show, This is Spinal Tap, and Waiting for Guffman. A Mighty Wind tells the tale of a folk singers reunion show and is funny, genuinely touching in parts (the Mitch and Mickey storyline), and features some great original music (and I’m not a big folk music fan). However, Guest’s mockumentary format is beginning to wear a little thin for me; I would have liked it a lot more had I not seen the others first.
