Plain sight
1 August 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Or maybe not so plain. The running time of the ReMastered series is really a draw and of course the subject matters they choose are too. The fact you could call them "Unsolved" instead of ReMastered (I actually have no idea why they went with that title) is a ... mystery.

And while this is coherent and sheds light on many aspects of Sam Cooke (his life, friends, influence and music), it also leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Or does speculate like every good documenatry does (?). Good structure and fine intervews make it engaging, if you can cope with a maybe not satisfying conclusion ... again
