Shut Up & Sing

Countless hours of footage must have been shot for this dazzling documentary, which focuses on the apparently endless fallout from the 2003 controversy over lead singer Natalie Maines’ anti-Bush comments. Oscar-winning director Barbara Kopple had total access—she’s even in the delivery room as Emily Robison delivers her twin babies—which makes it disappointing that the bare-bones DVD offers zero bonus footage. Nonetheless, the movie itself is a keeper: a frank, funny, fearless portrait of three women attempting to raise children and make music while living in a state of siege.
