Plot Summary
This poignant post-Katrina documentary looks at New Orleans' richly diverse musical history. Featuring performances from Fats Domino, The Neville Brothers, Snooks Eaglin and others, the concert film also culls from past interviews with performers, including Bonnie Raitt and Keith Richards, who reflect upon how the singular sound of New Orleans registers in their music. It's a celebration of African, Caribbean and French influences mingling with the Americana sounds of jazz, blues and gospel.

  • A suddenly vital biography, Make It Funky, pays apt homage to the unique gifts New Orleans has given its country over the last century. Watching it ought to inspire anyone to return the favor. show more

  • The love people have for this city just comes tumbling out of every part of this movie. show more

  • Despite the attention focused on New Orleans these days, though, the film won't win many new converts. The musicians swear this is dance music, but the beats are far too ponderous to get a rise out of the hip-hop generation. show more
