  1. msmichel's rating of the film Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown

    Gibney with a two hour runtime only scratches at the brilliance and ongoing influence of James Brown. From his humble beginnings to his mainstream success the film tracks his rise but is more than just a celebratory puff piece. Though not hard hitting the film does expose his megalomaniac tendencies, his greed and his abuse of women. In the end though this is a film about the power and influence of his music.
