- Critics' reviews
"An account of the Chess story that depends more on music than history, which is perhaps as it should be. The film is a fascinating record of the evolution of a black musical style, and the tangled motives of the white men who had an instinct for it. (...) Rating: ★★★ (out of four)."
Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times
"A rollicking and insightful celebration of Chicago blues in its hectic golden age (...) would be worth seeing for the music alone. (...) Like those big, boxy Caddies, it’s built for comfort, not for speed. It hums, it purrs and it roars."
A. O. Scott: The New York Times
