Movie Review for Danielson: a Family movie {or, Make a Joyful Noise HERE}


This was an interesting documentary about a great band. Interesting because instead of focusing mainly on the events that lead to what is going on now in the life of the bands Danielson and The Danielson Family, the makers chose to dwell, for the whole film, on the fact that Danielson is a Christian band that does not fit into the Christian-Band genera. Yes, I agree that this is interesting and a point that makes Danielson a very unique performer but even Daniel Smith (Danielson) didn’t want to dwell on this point. What I can say for the movie is that it was incredibly informative about the history and the components that went into creating what is now commonly viewed as a strange shrieking man in a tree costume. It gives you a very personal aproach to the band, featuring large chunks of the film that are narrated by (family and friend) band members. I enjoyed it, but thought that it dragged a little to the end. It will make you want to find more of this wonderful music.
