★★★½ review by Daniel Melvill Jones on Letterboxd
Saw this, for the second time, with a packed audience and with a friend who grew up with these artists. There were plenty of insights for the second round, including
- the way these older artists cultivated and trained the new talent, turning good into great
- wondering how much of Warren's humble personality came about because of his exclusion from Death Row
-frustration over the tonal shift between the mistakes of the East/ West war and the celebration of the closing scenes.
