Thread Name: Christopher Guest Film 'A Mighty Wind'
Subject: RE: Christopher Guest Film 'A Mighty Wind'
One of the reasons that it will not hurt interest in folk music is that in the whole film, there was not one authentic folk song. They were contrived and clever rewrites of the commericalized pseudo-folk song writing of the 60's. But real folk music? Fuhgeddaboutit.

I think that this might be one of the key points of the film.
