Editor's Note
The true story that inspired the 2003 Richard Linklater-Jack Black hit THE SCHOOL OF ROCK is shown in its real-life documentary form here. The Paul Green School of Rock Music in Philadelphia is showcased, inviting viewers to witness the unique personalities of Green and his rockin' students--who range in age from nine to 17. Musical talent abounds and the kids prove it when they travel to Germany and perform complex Frank Zappa tunes at the Zappanale festival.

Sight and Sound
"Green is a classically inspiring teacher....ROCK SCHOOL forms an unlikely companion piece to ETRE ET AVOIR." 08/01/2005 p.68

Uncut
"Green's demagoguery and force-of-nature persona eat up the screen..." 10/01/2005 p.137

Hollywood Reporter 8 of 10
Rock School rips out in the gritty-underdogs-conquer-the-world story progression. In this real-life scenario, Green whips them into shape for a triumphant performance at a Zappa Festival in East Germany - Duane Byrge

Rolling Stone 8 of 10
You cheered Jack Black in School of Rock, now give it up for Paul Green in the real thing. Green runs the Paul Green School of Rock Music in Philadelphia, and this fireball documentary from director Don Argott shows Green preaching the rock gospel to students ages nine to seventeen. "Dynamo" doesn't begin to describe Frank Zappa freak Green, who brings the cream of his crop to Germany to compete in the yearly Zappanale and makes believers of us all. - Peter Travers
