10 Blues Films You Should Watch

Hollywood’s track record (and its company jazz) pictures is at best a one that is spotty. A lot of the efforts at cinematic characterization harassed by defective cast happen to be riddled with historical inaccuracies or sabotaged by woeful and/or insufficient scripts and dialog. But here are a couple that merit reference, even though a few of these definitely have their issues.

1. Jammin’ The Blues (1944)

2. Last of the Blue Devils (1980)

3. Leadbelly (1976)

4. Bluesland – Portraits in American Music (1993)

5. The Blues Brothers (1980)

6. The Commitments (1991)

7. Cadillac Records (2008)

8. Crossroads (1986)

9. Sounder (1972)

10. Lady Sings the Blues (1972)
