Movie Diary 7/18/2021

Summer of Soul (Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, 2021). Outdoor concerts in Harlem, from the summer of 1969, seen in footage that was set aside for decades. Perhaps it will not surprise that the performances are wonderful and that the music is tied to activism. Is there too much talk over the music? Maybe, and one would like to see entire sets at DVD extras. But what’s here is lovely.
