"Get On Up," the new James Brown biopic starring Chadwick Boseman, opens in theaters this weekend. David Remnick at The New Yorker calls it the second best film ever made about the Hardest Working Man in Show Business. The first might be this video of a live New York City performance of Brown’s back in 1964.
