Originally filmed in 1972, this documentary about Aretha Franklin has been strongly reviewed by critics. Their consensus: Brilliantly capturing a remarkable performer near the peak of her prodigious power, Amazing Grace is a thrilling must-watch documentary for Aretha Franklin fans. It was not released when initially filmed due to technical difficulties synchronizing audio and visual tracks so was relegated to the Warner Brothers’ vault for decades.
