A strong entry in the series
9 May 2012 | by (US) – See all my reviews

While not quite my favorite of the films in "The Blues" series, this portrait of blues great B.B. King, and of the city that spawned so much of the blues, has a host of great performances fun moments (including Bobby Rush and Roscoe Gordon among others), and interesting insights into the changing face of a city. (The difference between the rich reality of Beale street years ago, and the touristy nothing of now is quite sad).

While it doesn't have the emotional impact of Wim Wenders "The Soul of a Man" or Scorsese's "Feel Like Going Home", there's still plenty to see and hear for an interested fan.
