Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The viewer witnesses the pure joy of creating, and the genuine love the men exhibit in collaboration.
Greatest documentary about underground music and culture since 2001’s ‘Scratch'
Amazing Music Doc
Honestly, I didn't know much about Stones Throw before I saw OVWAT. This is by far the best music documentary that I've ever seen. Peanut Butter Wolf and the rest of the Stones Throw team tell such a compelling story about life, living and loving hip hop. A must see.
One of BFI’s Top 10 Great Hip-Hop Docs
The British Film Institute named Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton one of the best Hip Hop documentaries ever and I couldn’t agree more.
The film is beautifully produced, the characters intriguing and complex and the music is world class - a classic film and one of the best music docs of 2013/14
