Good enough
Not a bad retrospective. Talking is kept to a minimum, just short linking pieces (mainly people saying what a great guy John Lee was, and also John Lee saying what a great guy John Lee was) which crop up between eighteen full performances by the man. The performances are varied and well chosen, showing the different sides to his style and with a good selection of his latter day collaborations with other artists such as Van Morrison (on harmonica only this time), Bonnie Raitt, Santana, Ry Cooder, and the Stones.

It's not a "serious" documentary though; there's no chronology to it and you won't learn much about Hooker's background and development, the origins of his style, what he really *thinks*, etc, but then that would have made it different type of film, and there would have been less music, which is what we really want.
