The film-making is workmanlike and never gets in the way of the pleasure of seeing these incredible oldsters getting the standing ovations they've deserved all their lives.

There's that constant humming undercurrent of adulation for Ry Cooder--who I am sure is a good man and a gifted musician and does not need to be shown so constantly that his presence becomes like product placement.
