Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Blues Brothers is the definition of a cult classic. A failure on it’s release, the film lived on thanks to the birth of video. But it’s initial failure was unfounded – this is a brilliant film. Insane, funny, surreal and stupid whilst always being charming, The Blues Brothers walks a fine line. But those wining turns by Belushi & Aykroyd, combined with an infinitely replayable soundtrack and a whose who of cameos (Franklin, Charles, Fisher) makes for some of the most fun and irreverent movies you will ever see.
Best Bit: The brothers take to the stage
