It's a perfect marriage of faith and showbiz, dignified by the fact that there's nothing ersatz about it. At its heart is an unfeigned exuberance, together with a sense of history, which informs the tears, laughter and fervent expressions of belief.

Franklin - focused, transcendentally beautiful and sweating profusely - takes us back to her roots.

I felt wrung out at the end of this film. How incredible must it have been for those who were there in person.

This is a film that revels in a titanic talent, and the details that an audio recording can never pick up. The close-ups are wonderfully intimate.

If Amazing Grace can't fathom the inner depths of Aretha in any definitive way, it grants her a great deal more than a little respect.
