local college showed this on a week night, thought a few people would show, but they filled the room. Bert Berns is a very interesting character that worked with seemingly every musical icon of the '60s.
I came away from the film with a much better appreciation of 1960s New York and the way in which R&B evolved into Rock and Roll.

Don't know when I've been more bummed to have a film end. This is like a combination of "The Sopranos," "Hairspray," and maybe a Terri Gross interview -- or name your favorite (highly intelligent) interviewer. Fast-paced, full of surprises, great interviews... I literally moaned in disappointment when the last frame finished, I wanted at least half an hour more. And to judge from the response of the others in the packed theatre (Mill Valley, CA film festival -- just across the Golden Gate Bridge from SAn Francisco, so a very hip, very sophisticated crowd, including a lot of musicians and people who worked in the rock industry) -- I wasn't the only person who wanted to see more - more! more! GREAT FILM -- you won't regret renting it!

Near perfect biopic. Great interviews and candid reflections on a man behind some songs that are truly classics.

Interesting topic, informative, but not a great movie. Starts with a dry narrative and never gets much better. On par with the average cable TV music channel documentary.

Incredible movie with Paul McCartney and Keith Richards praising this guy who wrote Twist and Shout, Piece of my Heart, I Want Candy, Cry Baby....list goes on and on! I LOVED this movie.
