The Best Blues Movies

List Criteria: Only movies featuring blues music in a major way.

A list of the best blues movies. These are films that focus on the music of the blues. We believe we have them all, but if your favorite blues film isn't on the list of the best blues films, please feel free to add it to the list yourself. The blues began with African Americans in the deep south of the United States (what could they possibly be singing the blues about?). The blues would go on to form the basis of jazz and even rock and roll. Around World War 2, blues began to go more mainstream with the advent of electric blues.

The 60s and 70s would bring us blues-rock. While the blues movie genre is often associated with being depressed, the movies on this list of the best blues films range throughout a number of genres. In fact, the most popular blues movie, "The Blues Brothers", is a comedy. So what is the best blue film ever? Which movies about blues really fire you up and make you want to dance in your seat? Vote on these blues music movies and share this list with your friends!

What are the best blues movies of all time? These movies about the blues seek to answer that question.
