    For the most part, though, Who Do You Love does a marvelous job of recreating the times and the music and, most of all, of bringing to life this behind-the-scenes giant of the music business.
  2. Who Do You Love, directed by Broadway veteran Jerry Zaks, pays attention to the music but to its credit pays even more attention to the actors and story.

    Ultimately an entertaining story about a deeply lonely man.

    Nostalgia and blues buffs who missed that lively film ("Cadillac Records") could do worse than this entertaining, if sometimes slight, revisit directed by Broadway veteran Jerry Zaks.
  5. Sitting on the shelf since 2008, when it was muscled out of the marketplace by "Cadillac Records," Sony's glossy, star-studded movie about Leonard. But it's clearly the better movie, earthier, wittier, and more intimate in its treatment of America's racial divide in the 1950s.
  6. As Leonard, Nivola isn’t bad, which is good, since the entire movie revolves around him.
  7. 63
    I think more edge is needed, more reality about the racial situation at the time, more insight into how and why R&B and rock ’n’ roll actually did forever transform societies in America and the world.
