  • Ripples with the emotions and the saddened circumstances of those gallant and talented folks who sing the blues. show more

  • A message movie that struggles mightily to make an impact but never comes close to capturing the gritty realism on which any blues singer builds his career. show more

  • As the film's central focal point, Simpson (who also co-wrote the script) is an awful zero – you could hardly imagine a more uncharismatic lead – and his embarrassing swings at big emotion in the climax prove the final blow to a film already hobbled by mawkishness. show more
