An absolute must for fans of the Blues
21 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sure the movie is a little rough and crude but the subject matter is too. Gritty, real, blues men in their own words.

The lay out their lives without blinking, tales of abuse, a killing or two, hard times and real love. You get to see these people, warts and all and hear them play the music their lives have created. They come out as complete pictures of complex human beings - not all good, not all bad just real people doing what they need to to get by.

The filmmakers and the record people are white, it appears that they deal fairly with the musicians and that this fairness eventually has gotten their subjects to be very open.

Great music! If you enjoy the blues you really have to see this film. If you aren't sure see the film it should make a believer out of you.
