The feature includes never-before-seen concert performances by Stevie W ... (more)

Predicting the Winners of the 2022 Oscars (20 movies items)

"And the Nominees are... *Ascension *Attica *Flee *Summer of Soul *Writing with Fire And the Oscar goes to... Flee has clear love, scoring three nominations, and Attica scored a surprise DGA win, but this has been Summer of Soul's category to lose all season. It's won all major precursors, sans DGA, and has the most broad appeal. Power Rankings 1. Summer of Soul 2. Flee 3. Attica 4. Ascension 5. Writing with Fire"

"First viewing - Nov. 14th I wanted to catch Summer of Soul in the theatre, but the timing never worked out for me. Thankfully it's streaming now and I was finally able to give it a look. I found the whole thing pretty fascinating, and enjoyed hearing a lot of the music. I also appreciated the ways it mixes in the historical context with each artist who performed at the festival.
