Reviews in German: "_ the film offers a terrific lineup, performers whose ability to enthrall
audiences is undiminished years after their peak of popularity." (Los Angeles

"The No. 1 thing Only the Strong Survive will have to survive is being
overshadowed by Standing in the Shadows of Motown. Less focused than last
fall's slam-dunk Funk remembrance, Survive is a more modest soul review _ and
eventually, revue _ that's worth the time and money some of the summer's
effects-driven spectacles probably won't be." (USA Today)

"Der Dokumentarfilm von Chris Hegedus und D.A. Pennebaker trägt den Titel
eines Nummer-1-Hits von «The Ice Man» Jerry Butler, dem neben Al Green wohl
grössten Soulsänger der späten 60er und mehr noch der frühen 70er. Ihr Film
setzt vorab den Soul-Veteranen aus Memphis, wo das Motown-Konkurrenz-Label
Stax seinen Sitz hatte, ein Denkmal: Isaac Hayes, William Bell oder dem 2001
verstorbenen Rufus Thomas und seiner Tochter Carla. Auch wenn der Bariton
Jerry Butlers nicht mehr über den Schmelz von einst verfügt, ein scheinbar
altersloser Wilson Pickett und die seit über 40 Jahren in unveränderter
Zusammensetzung singenden Chi-Lites sind ein Must für jeden «Soulmaniac»."
