Box Office: Cadillac Records

I love Mos Def, most definitely. So I will support any project that he is a part of, most definitely. I really didn’t know what to expect when I went to see Cadillac Records. I’ve never  been much of a fan of Blues.

I appreciated the movie for the music. I don’t think that any of the characters were well developed. For one, there are too many of them to focus on developing any of them. After seeing it, I talked to my father who worked out some of the hazy details.

As far as the movie goes, it does a good job of celebrating the music but I don’t think it does a good enough job of explaining the significance of the music. My father, who might have been romanticizing the impact of the music, told me more in twenty minutes than the movie did in nearly two hours.

The actors did an EXCELLENT job. Especially Columbus Short as Little Walter. And in the end, I did walk away from the theater with a new respect for Blues thanks to the following songs.

“My Babe”. Little Walter.

“Smokestack Lightning”. Howlin’ Wolf.

“Hoochie Coochie Man”. Muddy Waters.
