This is an interesting documentary.
7 January 2002 | by dmhubbsSee all my reviews

This is interesting if you are a Blues fan, like I am. I also recommend "Hellhounds On My Trail: The Afterlife of Robert Johnson (2000)". Danny Glover does a good job of covering his life. This documentary has a tendency to propagate the myths of RJ more than the fact.
