Mr. Dynamite - The Rise of James Brown

Mr. Dynamite - The Rise of James Brown ★★★★

As told by surviving band members and associates this is a fascinating doc about the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, Soul Brother Number 1, the Godfather of Soul, Mr Dynamite himself, James Brown; an arrogant, jealous, tyrannical, ambitious, untrusting, ruthless, dynamic, intelligent, inspirational righteous and self-righteous cultural icon and leader of one (well two technically) of the greatest musical acts in popular music.

I think this is a must see for anyone interested in pop music and/or US racial socio-economic history.
