THE BLUES BROTHERS (15)

142 mins | Dir. John Landis

John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin

THE BLUES BROTHERS: a cult comedy and a cultural touchstone. It introduced a generation ignorant of the cultural significance of African-American music like jazz, blues and soul to legends like Aretha Franklin, John Lee Hooker, James Brown and Cab Calloway. Picking up his brother ‘Joliet’ Jake Blues from prison where he’s served a three-year stretch for armed robbery, Elwood Blues has the audacity to turn up in The Bluesmobile, a decommissioned patrol car. The new motor will come in handy when the brothers try to stay one step ahead of State Troopers, Illinois Nazis and a pissed-off country band called The Good Ol’ Boys… and Jake’s homicidal ex-girlfriend, played by Carrie Fisher. Orange Whips all round!*
