Standing in the Shadows of Motown

All but forgotten in the annals of music history, the Funk Brothers layed down the groove on every single Motown hit from 1959 to 1972. This wonderful, soulful documentary not only enlightens viewers to this fact, but brings back the surviving Funk Brothers for an all-star concert (Joan Osborne, Bootsy Collins, Chaka Khan and Ben Harper providing vocals) to let us in on the musical magic they created. Shut out of both the money and the fame, these men have every right to be bitter old dudes. Instead, they're an inspirational testament to doing what you love and loving what you do. One of the best docs of the year. 116 minutes
