Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts can be seen rocking out in the back of the church. Perhaps not coincidentally, they were about to record "Exile on Main Street", the Rolling Stones' most overtly gospel-influenced album. See more »

Nostalgic Bliss
11 December 2018 | by deborahsanders-85454See all my reviews

To watch this movie is to journey between joy and pain. The joy of being able to hear her voice and see her perform as if it was happening right now. To feel the energy. And then the pain of reality...that she is gone and can not be replaced. I hope that this is just one of many to be made about her life and that future productions include a little more of her off-stage life with some minimal narration and analysis. Still, this rendition is deeply moving and I've been listening to her music ever since watching.
