This movie unfolds a bit like a Fela song
In the beginning it comes across as a doc about the B'way play. How
they struggled with portraying Fela, a complex, powerful yet conflicted
God. How to explain The Man to those that likely have never heard of
him, much less know and love his music and his message. Like explaining
Buddha or Jesus, its a bit slow but an interesting challenge.
Then Fela's personal history and the larger context of his family,
nation, education and temperament come into play. Subtle but gradually
more engaging, gathering steam. Again mimicking the progression of a
The meat of the film is quite cogent and lays out the philosophy and
politics that drive Fela's life. Surrounding himself with lovers and
followers, standing up and mocking those who make Nigerian life such a
struggle. That Fela never shied away, backed down, in fact only made
stronger by the oppression of his situation, this comes across very
Musically it does a decent job of explaining the extraordinary level of
Fela's three principal bands. Interviews with the Players are very
insightful in both the incredible musicianship and dedication to the
pursuit. But for those of us that saw Fela live and still listen,
collect and love his music, for understandable reasons it is here the
film falls just a bit short. As the record companies said, "What three
minutes of this 25 minute song can we put on the radio?". And thus one
has to be content with the interviews and brief concert footage. This
is not a concert film.
Likely if you are watching this film, Fela's long format songs are
familiar and inspire film goers to drop everything for 30 minutes and
drop a needle on listening to a full length "Zombie" or "Expensive
Some the film editing/audio cuts are quite extraordinary. Post on this
must have been a bear but this team really delivers.
Most moving- at least for me- was the unfolding story of Fela's
funeral. It too plays out like one of his songs. When someone says a
million people show up, it comes across as an exaggeration
see the footage. Powerful.
Truly one of the greats. Of Africa. Of Music. Of Philosophy. Fela.
