The birth of blues legend turned rock & roll pioneer studio Chess Records (the film's title begets a typically sinister twist), told with rushed, yet confident, biopic gusto and fantastic tunes galore.
A drama / music movie with the great actor Adrien Brody. He did an incredible role with the "Pianist" so i had to see what he could achieve in this flick and the result did not let me down. Good performance once again and so did the other cast members. This is a true story based movie about the rise of Cadillac Records in Chicago back in the 50s'. Blues / Rock N Roll with famous Chuck Berry and many other ones which im not quite familiar with. Im not really into this kind of music actually but i found it very enjoyable like i did with "Walk The Line". Overall a well made movie and nice to see and learn more of the music industry when the big boys had their hits.
Well, until now my knowledge of Muddy Waters and Etta James was very limited and now I know a lot more so this film did it's job. Not a bad film, not really my type of music but I enjoyed the film nonetheless.
