Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 05/09/2003
"...The film's most moving performances are by Mr. Butler....With a rich, pleading voice that conveys several layers of rusted sadness, wisdom and determination, Mr. Butler remains a peerless soul balladeer..."
USA Today - 05/09/2003
"...This is a movie made for the love of it. Co-producer Roger Friedman, interviewing on camera, is obviously crazy about the music, and there's an infectious family quality, as Carla Thomas sings with dad Rufus..."
Rolling Stone - 05/29/2003
"...Documentarians D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus blend insights with rare concert footage, creating one for the time capsule..."
Entertainment Weekly - 05/16/2003
"...A vital musical ramble, showing us wher some of soul's founders landed after their moments of pop glory....It's one of the happiest movies around..."
Premiere - 06/01/2003
"...STRONG is a loving celebration of a good many soul and R&B artists who have been unacknowledged as architects of modern music for too long..."
Los Angeles Times - 05/09/2003
"...This is a concert film with lots of appetizing filler that gives a sense of the geographical and stylistic evolution of rhythm and blues in cities across the nation....The film offers a striking contrast in performing styles..."
