New Sam Cooke Doc on Netflix

Always heard his murder was suspect because of conflicting stories, guess this new doc implicates the FBI becuase of Sam's Civil Rights work. His talent was on another level and his work will live forever.

The good thing is (and bad thing also for some)...that one day, we will all have to stand before God and answer to and for everything.

They left 99% of his killing out of the documentary.

Fantastic just fantastic. Great footage and audio I've never heard. Never knew he asked to meet Elvis. The Ali segment was great. I loved it so much and wished it was longer. A+++

Thanks. I just heard about this over the weekend and was hoping that there'd be some feedback on here before I check it out.

It made some great points about his publishing etc and how that might have played a role in his death, especially by those in power in the entertainment industry. However, I wished they spent more time talking about the aftermath...the ending felt rushed. I give it a 3.5 out of 5 popcorn

I thought it was great, but as a long-time Sam Cooke fan, I could have watched a much longer version! I think the filmmakers worked mainly to make their points about his demise rather than to provide a more general biography. Fair enough--it does seem to be giving more people an idea of the breadth of his talent and activism. Despite my fandom, there were things even I didn't know.
