Soul Power

On Saturday, Neilson and I saw Soul Power, a documentary about the 3-day concert in Zaire in 1974, planned around the Ali/Foreman fight which is the subject of When We Were Kings. The narrative doesn't make that much sense, but my only real complaint is that it isn't long enough. The great performances by James Brown, Ceila Cruz, and Bill Withers, among others, leave you wanting more. It also includes great clips of Ali. I'm putting When We Were Kings on my Netflix queue right now--I saw it when it came out, but now I can't wait to see it again.
