Phil Ochs: There But for Fortune 2011 ★★★½

An exhaustive, interesting portrait of the tragic folk singer. The most interesting material bookends things, but appearances by Christopher Hitchens, Jello Biafra, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez and Billy Bragg perk things up when it threatens to run off the track. Great music, too, and a wonderful starting place for those interested in Ochs or his music.
