  • Critic Reviews
    "[A] decidedly strange, delightfully demented documentary....Through his impressive visuals, Douglas finds great beauty and poetry in the bayous, bars and two-lane highways of the region..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "SEARCHING...provides its share of spine-tingling, occasionally surreal moments."

    "[A] fine travelogue documentary on music in the economically deprived but culturally rich American South..."
    Sight and Sound

    4 stars out of 4 -- "A musical tour of the backwater South..."
    Rolling Stone

    4 stars out of 5 -- "Part surrealist road movie, part theological disquisition, Andrew Douglas's odd, sometimes desolate film is a spectacular hodgepodge."
