SXSW Film Review: Amazing Grace
Words fail anyone attempting to describe the singing of Aretha Franklin, a standard this writer won’t be exceeding today. Buy the album Amazing Grace – buy all the albums – and now watch the film (in wide release next month) and wonder at what we gained, and what we have lost.
