A Mighty Wind (2003)

Mockumentary captures the reunion of 1960s folk trio the Folksmen as they prepare for a show at The Town Hall to memorialize a recently deceased concert promoter. (IMDb)

The classic doc-style direction is nailed here, and within this setting a brilliant script and deliciously natural turns all around create characters and situations so authentic-feeling you forget you’re watching a fictional film. The humour is consequently organic and mellow, spiked with just the right amount of deadpan outrageous-ness to solidify the film as a comedy while still maintaining it’s doc-facade. Good music and even a touching moment add further value to this great mockumentary.

7.5/10
