Highly recommended musical melodrama revisits rise of Chess Records, despite the glaring omission of Aretha who recorded her very first album with legendary company in 1956. How about showing the Queen of Soul a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T?
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Music fans will appreciate how the film traces the roots of Blues, R&B, and Rock, and shows that The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, and Led Zeppelin were influenced by the Chess label. It also helps to illustrate how far we've come in the past 50 years.

Stealing the show, so to speak are Beyonce's mesmerizing Etta James, Eamonn Walker's stunning Howlin' Wolf impression, and Mos Def's hilariously irreverent reprisal of rock 'n roll's young rabble-rouser founding father extraordinaire, Chuck Berry.
