      Leslie Felperin Guardian The biographical details are of far less interest to Collins than the music, and the film will be a particular delight to lovers of Irish folk music, with its keening textures and melancholic tones. Rated: 4/5 Dec 15, 2017 Full Review Mark Matousek Slant Magazine Director Pat Collins's approach to visual composition is more interesting in theory than practice. Rated: 1.5/4 Dec 13, 2017 Full Review Sheri Linden Los Angeles Times More than the story of an individual, the film is a stirring tribute to endangered folk traditions. Dec 7, 2017 Full Review Allen Almachar The MacGuffin I admired Song of Granite much more than I 'enjoyed' it. Rated: B- Jul 10, 2020 Full Review Nora Lee Mandel Maven's Nest Using an impressionistic, avant-garde style...its beauty and heartbreaking sense of lost connection to the past expresses much more than the usual corny sentimentalism. Rated: 8/10 Dec 31, 2019 Full Review Brigid Presecky FF2 Media Song of Granite is a unique portrait of a man's life; breathtakingly cinematic in black and white film. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 16, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member I loved this film! I'm sure it's not for everyone, but I found it very touching and emotional. It reflects an Irish homeland that my parents grew up in and tells a story that I had heard from many different people growing up. It also is masterfully produced and uses skillful filmmaking to really draw you in. I highly recommend it!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review dj l a 'fun' 1940s ride with boring acting and horrible plot. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/17/17 Full Review Audience Member A quietly stunning, gorgeously shot biopic about enigmatic Irish folk singer Joe Heaney that's as much a tribute to his homeland as the artist himself. Assembled almost wholly as a collection of painterly b&w static shots, this unconventional biography is light on narrative but overflowing with the stark beauty of its cinematography and Heaney's haunting songs. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
