Critic Reviews for Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues: A Musical Journey

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Instead of a lesson plan, there are Saturday nights on Beale Street and a kind of moseying of the camera into crevices of passionate enthusiasm.

The best and most complete introduction to recorded blues available.

July 2, 2018 | Full Review…

[Scorsese's] desire for a throng of personal pictures that rambled like the earliest blues men and women has also resulted in a series that at times feels unwieldy.
