2. FILM AT THE HIPPODROME: "STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF MOTOWN"

Visiting UF Professor Ntozake Shange acted as scriptwriter for a film
showing
locally at the Hippodrome now through Thursday February 6....
STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF MOTOWN "It's a glorious groove that leaves you
wanting more." - Rolling Stone. "This salute to the literally unsung and
underrecognized studio heroes of Motown is so good because it is one of
those rare documentaries that combines information with smashing
entertainment." New York Times. Singers came and went, but the Motown
Sound remained constant, and this documentary knows why. The Motown house
band, known as the Funk Brothers, played behind all of Motown's Detroit
hits, sometimes cobbling together an unforgettable song out of a few chords
and some vague ideas. But they remained semi-anonymous and were left behind
when Motown left town in 1972. This film recalls their glory days,
intercutting archival footage and new performances of Motown hits.
JAN 31 - FEB 6 116mins/2002/PG SHOWTIMES:
Wed. @ 4:30, 7 & 9:15; Thurs. @ 7 & 9:15
