Critic Reviews for Lightning in a Bottle
The event's musical director, Steve Jordan, marvels at one point: 'Looks like y'all hired the phone book . . . just looked up "Blues" in the Yellow Pages.'
Features a who's who of world-wise bluesmen (and women) and newbie practitioners.
Every so often there comes a must-see movie. This one's a must-hear.
If you know the blues, you've heard it all before. And if you don't, the film, after a promising step-by-step primer opening, won't help you.
Some of the blues performances here are rousingly hot and could make believers out of the staunchest classical music snob.
Audience Reviews for Lightning in a Bottle
What an honour to see this film with Antoine Fuqua and a collection of the legends that were finally honoured. A wonderful night of blues.
What a GREAT film! Anyone who enjoys guitar playing should definitely have this in their collection!
