“With its unimpeachable good intentions and already-compelling subjects, Alive and Well is (rightly) critic-proof, so the fact that it’s also a solidly-crafted, powerful piece of cinematic storytelling counts as a bonus. Taft uses the same visual gifts he applied to building the mythic status of rock band’s slow-motion passages that lend a poetic air to the subjects, loving close-ups that accentuate the distinctive features of each face’s to imbue very different subjects with their own quiet heroism.” – Tony Kay, City Arts
