[I]t does contain moments of bliss: As astonishing as the sound of Franklin's singing in 1972 remains, watching her do it is even better.
The long-buried concert film is a tremendously powerful tribute to Aretha Franklin. Full Review
AMAZING GRACE simply chronicles two incredible concerts, as Franklin, Cleveland, the choir and the congregants seek fellowship and find transport and transcendence.”
AMAZING GRACE can stand as an essential filmed record of what is undoubtedly one of the greatest gospel performances you’ll ever see.
Rating: 5/5 -- Amazing Grace is an impressing testimony of a unique moment of communion, catharsis, and purity. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
4 stars out of 4 -- This film is a powerful love letter to the Black Church, offering a soul-shaking introduction for the unfamiliar and a grandmotherly yank of the arm for those who know -- it drags you from the theater straight into the pews.
Rating: 4/5 -- This musical feast was filmed a very long time ago - but it feels like only yesterday. Full Review
In this documentary, Aretha Franklin performs with the choir at Watts' New Bethel Baptist Church in January 1972 while recording her live best-selling gospel album "Amazing Grace." In attendance are Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts of the Rolling Stones as well as members of Franklin's family and the local congregation and community who worship alongside her. Directed by Sydney Pollack and finished by Alan Elliott.
