It's an inconsistent film, put together somewhat haphazardly, but Keenan is such a compelling presence - smart, polite, creative and seemingly so full of bottled-up rage he might tear someone's head off at any second - that it's a journey well worth follo

While the film contains some interesting tidbits about both wine and Keenan, and some unexpected humor by comedians like Patton Oswalt and Bob Odenkirk, the movie never really justifies its existence except as an informercial for Keenan's winery.

Surely everyone can appreciate the gorgeous Verde Valley vistas and out-of-left-field celebrity cameos, which include Bob Odenkirk as a grape-mauling French wine snob.

Enjoyment of Blood Into Wine will likely be determined by one's passion for winemaking, or for Keenan himself.

The half of this film that is an actual, serious documentary, is thoughtful and endearing, while the attempt at offhand humor bleeds false and uninteresting.… More

A meandering documentary that never finds its center. It attempt to do this humorous talk-show bit that never becomes humorous. If after 15-20 minutes your… More
