Why: We wrote about Charles Bradley in our Weekly Guide – Soul Edition and Albums You  Should Have Been Listening to in 2011 because he has an undeniably troubled life story that is told with every note he sings. When I first read an interview with Charles and discovered that his brother was shot and killed, he was homeless in his teens, struggled financially for most of his life, I said “Someone should make movie about this guy.” Well for good reason that someone ended up being Poull Brien, the director of his two music videos “The World (Is Going Up In Flames)” and “Heartaches And Pain.” This film marks Poull’s directorial feature length film debut!
