  • The work as it stands now has considerable merit as a document recorded during a watershed period of the American civil rights movement. As a concert film, it's elevated by Franklin's powerhouse three-octave range and soulful phrasing.

  • In Amazing Grace, Aretha Franklin transcends the blues by saying a little prayer - or singing one - for all of us.

    December 16, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's a perfect marriage of faith and showbiz, dignified by the fact that there's nothing ersatz about it. At its heart is an unfeigned exuberance, together with a sense of history, which informs the tears, laughter and fervent expressions of belief.

  • Franklin - focused, transcendentally beautiful and sweating profusely - takes us back to her roots.

  • I felt wrung out at the end of this film. How incredible must it have been for those who were there in person.
