Critic Reviews for Hitsville: The Making Of Motown
It's far more clean-cut than Motown's origins ever were...but if you're a sucker for the hits of the '60s and '70s, this is a nostalgic temptation you won't want to miss.
Benjamin and Gabe Turner's documentary is an unashamed lovebomb, with Stevie Wonder and Little Richard laying it on thick, and much back-slapping between Gordy and his best friend, Smokey Robinson.
Flickery black-and-white footage of The Temptations and a group of session musicians recording 'My Girl' is nothing short of electrifying - just one of many astonishing archive scenes that will stay with you.
The movie hangs on the good-natured charm of Gordy and Robinson fondly reminiscing.
The pure joy of delving into the rise of some of the greatest singers known makes Hitsville: The Making of Motown an instant gloomy day classic. There are moments that are as beautiful and surprising as any spectacle you've seen in the cinema this year.
This documentary is an unabashedly self-congratulatory profile of Detroit's soulful, civil-rights-defying Motown label, focusing in particular on its unimpeachable late-1950s/60s glory years before founder Berry Gordy relocated operations to Los Angeles.
