Critic Reviews for BB King: The Life of Riley
[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.
It would have been nice if the movie had allowed voices less fannish than those of King's peers and childhood friends to make the case for the signficance of 'The King of the Blues.'
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.
Audience Reviews for BB King: The Life of Riley
A fitting and wonderful tribute to one of the greatest artists of all time. As with most legendary blues performers, the talent seems God given..out of the blue.
