CHECK OUT THE PRESS FOR IT'S ABOUT YOU
It's About You has garnered extensive media coverage. Here are some excerpts from the reviews, many more are available on Mellencamp.com's News Section

Los Angeles Times - "The result is an unhurried, visually compelling look at a man and his music — as well as of a bygone America filled with shuttered downtowns and the ghosts of such late musicians as Elvis Presley and blues pioneer Robert Johnson. For Mellencamp fans, there are stirringly rendered performances of such hits as "Pink Houses," "Small Town" and, especially, "Crumblin' Down..."

The Wall Street Journal: Old Technologies Make 'It's About You' About More - "I realized that the real subject of this film, with its philosophical voice-overs by the filmmaker and its haunting shots of decayed American downtowns, is the passage of time and the toll it takes..." "It's About You" is an odd and touching little film..."

New York Times: On This Rock ’n’ Roll Tour of the Heartland, a Sobering Survey of Old America - "The “you” in the film’s title is Kurt Markus, and his sporadic commentary has the oracular tone of a prose poem..."

"Because Kurt Markus’s Super 8 camera is the cinematic equivalent of a single microphone, the film’s look matches the scratchy quality of its ancient (by rock ’n’ roll standards) sound. The crudeness brings out the elemental quality of music that digs deeply into the soil of working-class American life in songs that express the defiance, despair and nobility of people who refuse to go down without a fight..." "the songs on “No Better Than This” convey this wondrous sense of mystery..."
