In honor of Get On Up, what is your favorite bio pic on a musician?
I don’t know, I just really love Joaquin Phoenix as The Man in Black. Such a great underrated movie.
Nowhere boy.Its maybe the most underrated film about a musician.
I have not seen NOWHERE BOY. All of these are good films, but the only great one IMO is BOUND BY GLORY.
Walk the Line, Coal Miner’s Daughter, Ray, La Vie En Rose…come close but somehow I feel without their particular powerhouse leads these films would fall shy. Who knows?
Selena, I don’t remember much about other than the events in the story, so it must not have impressed me as a film. I’m Not There, kind of gave me a headache.
Of these, I’d say Coal Miner’s Daughter, which featured a really outstanding set of lead performances from Tommy Lee Jones and (especially) Sissy Spacek. Overall, I’m inclined to say Amadeus, if that even counts.
^Amadeus should count! Even though it’s entirely fictional, it is an excellent film.
