| The Story of the Chess records company, a company that would go on to greatly popularize Blues during the 50's and 60's and help the creation of rock music.
"Who Do You Love (2010)" provides a great look into the world of music during the 50's and 60's, showing the audience how Blues became extremely popular and how Rock and Roll was created, so if you can expect anything walking in, it's fantastic music. The cast, including Alessandro Nivola (Leonard Chess), David Oyelowo (Muddy Waters), Chi McBride (Willie Dixon), Jon Abrahams (Phil Chess), Lisa Goldstein (Sheva Chess), Megalyn Echikunwoke (Ivy Mills), and Robert Randolph (Bo Diddley), all put on phenomenal performances, all those that did use their musical vocals singing the classic songs that influenced generations as if they were their own. Jerry Zaks, who as a director has spent most of his career so far on television, has proved to handle a feature film quite well, using very good shots and angles as he had with his three episodes of "Two And A Half Men" (Episodes include "Tucked, Taped, and Gorgeous", "Aunt Myra Doesn't Pee A Lot", and "And The Plot Moistens"). Of the movies I have seen that were written by Peter Martin Wortmann and Robert Conte, this is by far their best, with catchy, funny dialogue and smart, well thought out characters and events (even though based on a true story). The movie depicts the start of a new world of music, something that went on to develop and change into a large amount of mini-genres and has shown all it's listeners a new way to express culture, feelings, actions, opinions, and the world in general. "Who Do You Love" is recommended to everyone, but is a must see for lovers of old blues and classic rock and roll as well as the older audience. 7.6/10
