06/12/2012 - Read the 4 out of 5 star Blu-raydefinition.com complete review after the jump. Here are some excerpts: " Itís a visual postcard of America, a bygone America or the America of books like some stream of consciousness Kerouac novel. Itís visual beauty is at once recognizable by the visual cues of Americana, inspiring, and heartening in its depictions of prosperity and decay. This is a marvelous little indie film that is more than a film about music, itís a film about the American landscape, the American experience."

"An excellent film that not only encapsulates the decades of Mellencampís career, but tells a beautiful story about the country he has been fighting for his entire career. "

06/04/2012 - John Mellencamp is captured on film by as he creates one of his most acclaimed records, No Better Than This. It's About Youís co-directors, famed photographer Kurt Marcus and his son Ian, travel along with John Mellencamp on his 2009 concert tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson.

Beyond the concerts and the travel in-between they also film the writing and recording of Mellencampís universally acclaimed 2010 album No Better Than This, the sessions for which took place at several American musical landmarks. We see Mellencamp at Sun Studio in Memphis, where Elvis Presley recorded his breakthrough classics, and recording (with a mono tape recorder more than half a century old) in the same San Antonio hotel room where legendary bluesman Robert Johnson created his seminal work.

The Markuses shoot in Super 8 to visually echo the authentic Americana that resonates in Mellencampís music. Along the way, the rocker reveals an emotional and contemplative side never before seen by the public, in a career-spanning film that becomes a soulful meditation on his beloved heartland.

It's About You, is available now for in Mellencamp.com Store on Bluray or DVD. After the jump you can see clips from the film, read the press release and learn more. Read More
