Movie Reviews

Great celebration of a remarkable career.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're a fan of the McGarrigles -- or Loudon Wainwright -- or even Rufus Wainwright -- you'll love this DVD. A "live" recording of their great album "McGarrigle Hour" this features songs that range from Stephen Foster to the best of the duo's 20+ year career...also some beautiful songs by Loudon Wainwright and his children Rufus & Martha. This might be the best textbook on harmony that you could find. Also nice interview clips and 4 "bonus" songs from a 1981 Concert. A beautiful collection."

"This DVD is a complete joy to watch! Everyone in it does an excellent job. The harmonizing of this family is beautiful! It is well worth the cost, and I enjoy viewing it again and again. I too, as the first reviewer, had went though three copies trying to get it to play on my new Toshiba DVD player. I learned that my player needed a software upgrade. I returned it to the dealer, who exchanged my player. Only then, did the Mcgarrigle Hour play. It was worth all the inconvience, though, because this is what DVD should be."

"If you want to actually receive this dvd or any other dvd for that matter do not order from the "company" that calls itself dvdfactory. If you ever receive your order it will arrive very late. I was promised 1-7 days and it has now been 25 and I still have nto received my order. Oh yes they have gotten their money. What a way to do business, huh."
Finest Hour

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD presents the extraordinary musicianship, smart lyrics and heart-piercing harmonies of Kate and Anna McGarrigle, one of the finest singer-songwriter teams of the past thirty years. With no need for "flash" effects, smoke, strobes or hyped-up lighting because there's real talent on stage, this is just a presentation of brilliant singing and playing, pure and simple. The sound and picture quality are very good but the performances themselves, by the McGarrigles, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Loudon Wainwright III and more are incredible. Having grown up in a large extended family in which we might break out in an impromptu song fest on weekends, I found the "family" feel of this concert to be especially moving and touching. Songs by Cole Porter, Stephen Foster and the McGarrigles -- does it get any better?"
