From the same director of 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory', 'Wattstax' remains a insightful and inspiring concert documentary featuring heartfelt testimony, rapturous editing, and some banging tunes.
Some very early starring roles for Nick Nolte and Don Johnson. It's a road trip that goes wrong in the Deep South. Some great 1950s music, wonderful chemistry between the three leads, and most importantly, fast cars. It would be a great double feature with the first in the series, "Macon County Line". They make for a great exploitation type of night.
