a film by sara sugarman
"Director Sara Sugarman's fresh, funny, film delves into the relationship of rock star dads and their illegitimate children, the misdirection of today's spotlight on the young rather than the talented, and the role of technology in today's music industry."
THE SANTA BARBARA POST
"Spinal Tap meets School of Rock...the result is a heartwarming rock mockumentary."
SANTA BARBARA INDEPENDENT
"VINYL has plenty of pluck, verve, and punchlines, not to mention a fiendishly catchy simpleton anthem in 'Free Rock and Roll.'"
SB INDEPENDENT INTERVIEW WITH SARA SUGARMAN
"The film takes cunning slices at the music biz, but gets by pure ebullient spirit, the whole cast and crew feel like they were enjoying themselves inordinately making a film in which where sex and drugs have become Viagra and rock and roll is all a big, merry swindle."
INDIE FILM GURU
"The film keeps up a brisk pace with its punk-influenced soundtrack. [Sugarman] keeps the scenes light in the script."
VARIETY FILM REVIEW
"VINYL is a genial underdog's revenge comedy about some old punkers who fool the industry that's forgotten them into promoting their new single ...lovely and likable....[the cast] is colorful and energetic.
