[King] is unfailingly articulate, gentlemanly and modest but this is a movie where more music, less talk would definitely have been an improvement.
In the music business, 'legend' is an over-used word: see this and understand what it means.
An intuitive and appealing documentary about the life of one of the world's most recognised Blues musicians, but BB King: The Life of Riley sometimes grows a bit repetitive and its chronological sequence is rather bland.
Too many people know this man as just the source vocalist from Moby's classic 'Natural Blues'; hopefully this will change that.
[An] authoritative British documentary on [King's] long, impressive career.
