Was OK but nothing to write home about...
10 February 2019 | by mtman-32804See all my reviews

To be honest it should have just been called "The life and legend of Sam Cooke". They spent about 10 seconds on the actual murder. 5 seconds devoted to the woman who actually admitted to killing him and 5 seconds on a quick list of conspiracies. Otherwise it had very little to do with the actual murder. In the end I enjoyed the historic relevance but I felt a bit battered by the constant mantra that I'll never understand the black experience.
