The Butler, The Civils Rights Movement And The Soundtrack

Recommended Posts

went to see the film last night, albeit the dubbed version. not a dry eye in the house, including me!

very, very moving indeed. if deforrest whitaker and oprah winfrey don't get oscars for this it'll be a travesty. lenny kravitz, musically definitely not up my street, has an actor lurking within him if you observe him closely.  the sound system in our local cinema is incredible so stuff like shorty long 'function at the junction', patti drew 'tell him', james brown 'outtasight' and the people's choice 'party, it's a groovin' thing' nearly had me out of seat and on my feet. it's dedicated to all those who fought and died in the civil rights struggle and based on a true story. ronald reagan comes over as the canute he was. maybe not as dumb as we've been led to believe.
