  1. tubbssw's rating of the film Finding Fela!

    A complicated man and a gifted musician. It touches on the political background in Nigeria - I am ashamed to say I had forgotten about the starving Biafran children which was a bloody disgrace. Fela needed to be brave to stand up to the Government. Musically - what a beat! and the dancing is raw.

  2. Greg Cooper's rating of the film Finding Fela!

    Feels like the musical stuff was added purely to drive people towards attending it. It detracts from the life story of fela and interrupts the viewer visually as well.

  3. mpho3's rating of the film Finding Fela!

    Gibney used to be one of my fave docu directors, but he's fallen off the mark in more recent work. Here, while the Bill T. Jones segments were interesting, the film doesn't succeed in finding Fela (the stage show narrative) nearly as well as the stage show itself does in finding the man. The bit about not wanting to delve into AIDS for the show was interesting. 3.5 stars

  4. Tom Cottey's rating of the film Finding Fela!

    Excellent intro to the amazing life story of Fela Kuti.

  5. Zissou's rating of the film Finding Fela!

  6. mubianer's rating of the film Finding Fela!

    Entertaining, but not great. But hard to fail with such an interesting subject matter. More 3.5 than 4.
