An excellent documentary on this superb company, Motown Records (later Motown Entertainment), told via archival footage and anecdotes from various Motown artists, songwriters, producers, and executives, with the plurality coming from company founder Berry Gordy, Jr., who has lots of help from Smokey Robinson, who are both on-screen for much of the documentary.
The Blu-ray picture is excellent, by the way, on my 2016 Sony Blu-ray player. This is notable because it's a region "A" Blu-ray player meant for use in the United States while the Blu-ray is clearly marked region "B" both on the disc itself and on the package. However, I relied on several Blu-ray reviews from Amazon U.S.-based reviewers who claimed that it plays just fine on their Blu-ray players, and that was the case for me, the first time ever that a supposedly region "B" Blu-ray has played on one of my Blu-ray players, and it played with no problems of any kind. (Thank-you to some of the other U.S.-based, Amazon-customer, Blu-ray reviewers who pointed this out.)
While this documentary is not all-inclusive in terms of covering the key artists or songs, much less doing so in-depth, the problem is that there were just too many great artists and great songs that came out of Motown for a two-hour documentary to do them much justice. Berry and Smokey cheapened things, too, and wasted valuable screen time, with boring and constant references to their conquests of women, even references to making lots of babies, and they seemed regularly amused by this foolishness. And there were other dumb, unnecessary anecdotes from them, such as one about when they drove in a car one day in the 1960s and Berry, who was the driver, was looking under the dashboard for a record, which scared Smokey. I mean, WHO CARES??!! I couldn't help but think that years ago, Gordy wouldn't have put up with this nonsense being in a Motown production, especially knowing that they were using stupid filler of them joking around when there could instead have been rare footage, or commentary from other great Motown artists, producers, musicians, or songwriters.
One downside is that the English subtitles for the hard of hearing, which were obviously done by a European (based on the spellings-- for example, the second-to-last letter in the word "realize" is an "s" in the subtitles), have a number of errors throughout the documentary, starting at the very beginning where, on an old audio recording of Berry Gordy telling someone who is late to a meeting that he cannot stay, the subtitles say that he CAN stay. Another embarrassing error occurs shortly after the 1h14m mark, when audio of one of the Beatles is erroneously attributed in the subtitles to Paul McCartney, when it is obviously George Harrison doing nearly all the talking, until John Lennon comments (Lennon is then correctly credited in the subtitles). And there are other key subtitle mistakes throughout the movie, at least 12 that I identified. Apart from that, the subtitles are basically good.
The Blu-ray has no extras aside from the option of English subtitles and a choice of audio quality/output (5.0 or 2.0), but again, the Blu-ray picture quality, concerning the scenes that were filmed in high-definition in the last couple of years, is crystal-clear and perfect-looking.
Just enjoy this fine film for what it is: clearly a tribute to Berry Gordy Jr., his family background, his methods, and the wonderful music that he fostered through his production line system at Motown Records, with good footage of a number of artists from back in the day, and numerous insightful recollections by all. Despite lacking plenty of good stuff, this production nonetheless contains plenty of great footage, is quite enjoyable, very informative (especially to the uninitiated), and contains much to appreciate and enjoy about this monumental company that created much of the superb music in the soundtracks of our lives, esp. in the 1960s, '70s, and, to a lesser degree, the '80s.
This one is a keeper.
