Overview

Stephen Gammond's long and detailed look at the life and art of Woody Guthrie has been given a straightforward presentation in this DVD release from Recall DVD and Snapper Music. Woody Guthrie: This Machine Kills Fascists has been transferred to disc in its original full-frame aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The documentary was shot on video and the transfer reveals a pleasing clarity and level of detail, and the color balance is solid and realistic. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo and the results sound fine, with even the archival materials clear and understandable. The interviews and songs are in English, with no multiple language options or subtitles included. No bonus materials have been included with this edition, though the disc does feature an option that allows users to skip to specific songs rather than just from chapter to chapter. While this release is skimpy on extras, the presentation of Gammond's film is very good, and music fans with an interest in Guthrie's work will find it worth a look.

You completely ignored the work and life of Jack Elliot!!!! Without Jack's following and commitment of Woody there would not be a Bob Dillion who very selfishly has ignored Jack and his life's work.

This film is not about Dylan "or Elliott", it is about Woody Guthrie and I recommend it.
