    • Excerpt: The story of Death is quite remarkable, made all the more interesting by the giant personalities of the two surviving Hackney brothers, Dannis and Bobby. This is a story about family, sticking together and defying all odds.

  • Cole Smithey @
    • Excerpt: As much a think piece on America’s faded glory as a musical history lesson and character study, “A Band Called Death” is yet one more example of the power of documentaries to surpass Hollywood’s incessant stream of processed pap.
