"[A] shimmering, quiet treasure of a film, an elegy to mutable friendship, enduring nature, and the sense of loss that inevitably accompanies the adult pull to move forward." -- Grade: AEntertainment Weekly Included in Entertainment Weekly's "Top 10 Films Of The Year" -- "OLD JOY is a small, delicate thing, and a huge achievement in honestly independent filmmaking."Entertainment Weekly Ranked #13 in Film Comment's "20 Best Films Of 2006."Film Comment "[F]illed with the kind of unemphatic ambition and relevance that's become virtually extinct in American independent filmmaking."Film Comment 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]ts subtlety is as treasurable as an old friend."Total Film "[A] campfire monologue recalls EASY RIDER, and a wrangle over an order in a diner brings to mind FIVE EASY PIECES.

3 stars out of 5 -- "It's a small story with a big heart that trumps a lot of the louder and more expensive machine-made Hollywood pictures."Box Office "[Reichardt] has perfected a mode of rapturous minimalism....Williams makes Wendy's total lack of affect luminously expressive." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly "[The film] does not include a superfluous word or shot....What happens to Wendy -- and to Lucy -- matters a lot, which is to say that WENDY AND LUCY, for all its modesty, matters a lot too."New York Times "Reichardt's haunting, mournful film engages the texture of a life in which money and hope are equally thin on the ground....Williams' performance is remarkable not only for its depth but for its stillness."Los Angeles Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Kelly Reichardt is a true cinema poet who works miracles in miniature. And she finds the perfect collaborator in Williams..."Rolling Stone Included in Entertainment Weekly's 2008 Films Of The Year -- "[A] precise, nearly whispered story....Pay attention, and it grows into a textured ode -- or maybe it's a lament -- to a lost America..."Entertainment Weekly "WENDY AND LUCY is another illustration of how absorbing a film can be when the plot doesn't stand between us and a character."Chicago Sun-Times "Williams's performance is nuanced, moving and well worth any awards she gets."Washington Post 4 stars out of 5 -- "Far more than just a sentimental anecdote about a girl and a dog, on this exciting new director's watch a simple tale becomes the stuff of pure poetry."Total Film27.79318

Spin - "It's fitting for singer/songwriter Will Oldham to collaborate with young Chicago guitar whiz Emmett Kelly. Both are intimate with folk forms lodged in the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Emerald Isles..."Pitchfork (Website) - "All of Oldham's takes on love and companionship here are worth the price of admission, but what makes the album really stick is the way each tale is mirrored by its sonics."Uncut (magazine) (p.84) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Slowly, these immensely crafted songs bed in, emerging as some of the best and most accessible that Oldham has ever written. 'That's What Our Love Is' is remarkable..."0.4085915

Q (p.125) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n intimate hour spent revisiting past glories, with Penn's soothing voice and Oldham's soulful keyboards gliding through the night."Down Beat (p.67) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Still an outstanding tunesmith, Penn leaves Nashville now and then to give performances with sidekick/keyboardist Oldham -- here they're in the British Isles in 1998."Living Blues (p.40) - "Penn takes the lead on most of the songs. His grainy murmur transforms 'I'm Your Puppet' from a jaunty novelty into a yearning plea of infatuation."No Depression (1-2/00, p.94) - "...Penn, of the astonishingly soulful vocals, and Oldham, potentate of the slow-groove Wurlitzer...are responsible for sublime pop and soul songs....[this album] is a master class with two great soul men."Mojo (Publisher) (p.131) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Penn's voice -- weathered yet unmistakably smooth -- is in top form, and the recording is crisp enough to make the listener feel like they were there."Mojo (Publisher) (1/00, p.30) - Ranked #38 in Mojo Magazine's "Best of 1999"0.3064436

Alternative Press (p.200) - "[T]he sound is closer to the Boss' NEBRASKA -- as Will Oldham would have done it -- haunting, reflective and drowning in sorrow."No Depression (p.120) - "TO THE RACES sounds like a troubadour telling tales of isolation and loneliness by a campfire just over a sand dune from the ocean."0.2948755

Spin (p.68) - "Most of the record crawls by quietly, like a wary hunter."Magnet (p.52) - "WOLFROY GOES TO TOWN is a meditative and sparse collection....On tracks like 'We Are Unhappy,' he still sees a darkness."The Wire (p.56) - "Oldham orbits a remarkably consistent sonic and lyrical solar system -- a Kentucky Kierkegaard for the mildly melancholy..."Record Collector (magazine) (p.90) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "WOLFROY GOES TO TOWN quietly features some sterling additions to Oldham's songbook. Album centerpiece 'Black Captain' recalls vintage Palace material in its musical economy..."Uncut (magazine) (p.81) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[U]ncharacteristically respectful of the traditional country and hushed folk idioms that make it up."0.2919118

Spin (p.77) - "Oldham remains mostly untroubled on BEWARE, accompanied by an array of instruments -- marimba, cornet, banjo, and flute swirl around placid country-tinged ruminations..."Entertainment Weekly (p.63) - "BEWARE is studded with warm country rambles and folky, fiddle-tinged laments." -- Grade: B+Q (Magazine) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] more muscular instrumentation....'There Is Something I Have To Say' and 'Without Work You Have Nothing' testify to Oldham's metaphysical powers."Paste (magazine) (p.65) - "'There Is Something I Have To Say' swells in that listless ennui he favored in a past life, while 'Afraid Ain't Me' -- with it gypsy punch -- adds flute and violin with an ear toward DESIRE-era Dylan."Pitchfork (Website) - "Oldham seems more inclined than ever to instruct and guide, a move befitting his age, experience and the role he plays in the indie-rock community."Clash (magazine) (p.111) - "There is an air of flamboyance surrounding this record, and it is this evocation of grandeur that ensures that these essentially personal anecdotes are give the life and breathing space they deserve."Record Collector (magazine) (p.88) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "BEWARE is yet another collection of songs veering from the poignant to the amusing, with heartbreaking, filthy ruminations upon the turbulence of relationships."Uncut (magazine) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Warmed through by pedal steel, and by soulful backing singers, the impression is periodically of EXILE...-era Rolling Stones, buffed up to a Nashville shine."0.2553697

Spin (1/98, p.88) - Included on Spin's list of "Unheard Music." - "...This southern New Jersey `family' band (ages 12 to 24) couple ingenuously ingenious indie-rock arrangements with the apparently uplifting lyrics and helium vocals of leader Daniel Smith to create a joyful noise that would even perplex Will Oldham."Alternative Press (4/01, p.84) - "...Truly original sonic Americana..."Village Voice (4/8/97, p.65) - "...passionate, tempestuous, messy music....This music has a hallucinatory, surrealistic poetry of intimate faith, unfiltered by organized religion....After 45 minutes of nearly psychotic excitement, the staunchest atheist may find herself muttering "I love my Lord..."0.2359004

Spin (p.112) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Marling's voice, rich and tenuous, recalls Joni Mitchell, but her fatalistic screeds -- sung over acoustic guitar, with an occasional burst of percussion or strings -- owe more to Nick Drake and Will Oldham."Clash (magazine) (p.68) - Ranked #11 in Clash's "The 40 Best Albums of 2008"The Word (magazine) (p.106) - "Marling's folk constructions are as naked as those of Joan Baez or early Joni Mitchell, and her singing is pacy and urgent -- colourful, confident and distinctly un-waiflike."0.2359004

Classic lived-in country."Mojo (Publisher) (p.109) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The sepia-toned, Opry retro remains and there's excellent 'now' Americana..."0.2359004

3 stars out of 5 -- "What lifts the film is the terrific score by David Byrne who appears as himself and has crafted some of his most memorable tunes including the rich title song that sets the tone for the film, title and all."Box Office "As ever, Sorrentino fills the frame with panache, making striking compositions from the terraced streets....There are pleasures indeed..."Sight and Sound 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] charming, stylish and witty journey through America and into history..."Total Film "David Byrne cameos as himself in a very funny scene....Byrne also collaborated with Will Oldham on the soundtrack."Uncut "The music, by David Byrne and Will Oldham, is exceptionally varied and characteristically rich."Wall Street Journal "[E]very character is strongly drawn and played with an unsettling tension..."Los Angeles Times "[A film] that expresses the kind of fascination with exotic American landscapes that you find in Wim Wenderss PARIS, TEXAS, Wong Kar-wais MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS, and in BORAT."New York Times "[Penn] succeeds in slowly ferreting out the complicated, confused man underneath the affectations." -- Grade: B+A.V. Club 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "THIS MUST BE THE PLACE centers on another uncompromising character invention by Sean Penn....Few actors have played a wider variety of characters, and even fewer have done it without making it seem like a stunt."Chicago Sun-Times0.2085085

Musically, the band capture chamber pop in a rustic barbed-wire trap."Magnet (p.110) - "Okkervil River's Will Sheff has spun Hardin's two-minute ditty into an impressionistic narrative full of blood and conflict, of creaky folk waltzes and surprisingly upbeat rock."Mojo (Publisher) (p.64) - Ranked #2 in Mojo's "2005 Americana Albums Of The Year."Mojo (Publisher) (p.114) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[T]he music is quite beautiful, while the vocals sound like the unnatural union of Will Oldham and Robert Smith."0.2064129

Rolling Stone (p.83) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he music is long on understated beauty: 'Harper Road' sets Kozelek's stoned croon over mellow guitar-picking..."Spin (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Powered by mordant but melodic vocals [and] authoritatively picked guitar....A beautifully depressing array of funereal folk."Uncut (p.111) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Few chronicle heartbreak with such methodical, forensic attention."Alternative Press (p.131) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Finger-picked acoustic guitar and Kozelek's echoing, old-soul vocals paint haunting snapshots full of solitary introspection and wistful nostalgia."Magnet (p.117) - "Will Oldham's ghostly backing vocals add another shade of darkness to 'Unlit Hallway,' and the starkly hypnotic 'Heron Blue' recalls an Appalachian murder ballad..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.103) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his third Sun Kil Moon album demonstrates Kozelek spinning luminescent textural webs on original compositions which, like the ravishing Moorestown, rank among his very finest."0.1769253

Rolling Stone (2/9/95, pp.58-59) - 3 Stars - Good - "...HOPE augments its arrangements with piano, organ, bass, drums and electric guitar. The clarity and fullness of sound create a less intimate recording....but that doesn't stop the mournful procession of tunes..."Spin (3/95, p.96) - 8 - Highly Recommended - "...Like its predecessors, HOPE is achingly beautiful, homespun, honest....Palace songs...are simple plaintive pieces that sound for all the world as if they emerged whole from an obscure Kentucky mountain town..."Option (3-4/95, p.125) - "...Will Oldham (Palace, Palace Brothers) sings of loneliness, alienation, and the sad search for redemption like someone in a backwoods version of WAITING FOR GODOT....Like an old western landscape, it's stark, desolate and deeply poetic..."NME (Magazine) (12/17/94, p.31) - 6 - Good - "...The mood here is still miserable, certainly, but the starkness is warmed through with the rattles of a detuned piano, slinking slide guitar and high-reaching harmonies..."0.1769253

It brings back some of the twang and front-porchiness of the past..."Q (Magazine) (p.103) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "It sounds fascinating and its sprawling mix of styles, vocalists and inspirations is not without its passion or humour."Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n album that's stylistically their most wide-ranging....There's more Americana this time than there is Allmans and ZZ Top -- ranging from straightforward country to electric country-blues."Mojo (Publisher) (p.72) - Ranked #13 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "[A]n epic of jagged, Crazy Horse Americana."Blender (Magazine) (p.98) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "BRIGHTER is unique for its air of quiet resignation about misery....The weary midtempo arrangement embody the album's crushing hopelessness, tempered only by John Neff's elegant pedal steel."Harp (magazine) (p.92) - "BRIGHTER is one fo the more tightly-focused, energized DBT records to date."0.1474378
