James Brown – Mr Dynamite: The Rise Of James Brown
Definitive documentary on the Soul Brother No.1
As far as biopics go, 2014’s Get On Up was a stellar effort, telling James Brown’s story from childhood penury to angel dust- addled madness with style and panache. Decent as that effort was, Mr Dynamite is far superior. Why? Who would you rather watch – James Brown or an actor pretending to be JB? Here you get the JB story with sizzling footage of the man himself as he destroys audience after audience across the decades.
