The Blues Brothers Collection

3

Its iconography besmirched by stage productions, a needless sequel and umpteen themed stag nights, The Blues Brothers endures in spite of its obnoxious lead characters. Made in 1980, the Dan Aykroyd-John Belushi vehicle is a strikingly shot series of largely successful set-pieces (James Brown’s sermon, director John Landis’ proto-‘Thriller’ dancing in the streets, the car chase) linked together with dead-air skits only a drunk or an idiot could find funny.
