Spinning Gold plot

"To make hit records, Casablanca Records broke every rule"

A musical film about the most successful independent record company of all time - Casablanca Records - from record executive and co-founder Neil Bogart. The rock band KISS, Donna Summer, Gladys Knight, Bill Withers, Giorgio Moroder and The Village People all reached their peak in the 1970s under the "watchful ear" of the music industry's most colorful and brilliant producer. Together with many young music lovers, Casablanca Records would rewrite history and change the industry forever with 'the best soundtrack of our lives'. Their blend of creative madness and belief in each other shaped our culture and ultimately defined a generation.

It took the director 24 years to make a film about his father and the result is a strong piece of nepotism. Neil Bogart has been virtually forgotten by the general public. That's partly because it was just another pseudonym for Neil Scott Bogatz, but probably also because his life story isn't very interesting. An entrepreneur at heart who launched the first independent record label, Casablanca Records, in 1974 with a disastrous performance by Kiss, as well as producing such classics as "Wooly Bully" by Sam The Sham & The Paraohs, "It's Your Time" by The Isley Brothers, Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine," Gladys Knight & The Pips' "Rainy Night In Georgia," and Donna Summer's classic sex record "Love To Love You Baby." The music is certainly good, thanks to guest appearances from the likes of Tayla Parx, Jason Derulo, Wiz Khalifa and Pink Sweat$. Jordan doesn't have enough charisma to make Bogart more interesting than I thought he was.

I agree with mrklm, the main character is not such a fascinating character and the film will never live up to that. Nice atmospheric images and beautiful photography in a yellow-gold (Gold!) glow constantly, very nice to look at. But all the roles of the well-known artists just hang around and the film meanders along without ever really becoming interesting. But it takes a very long time. 1.5*.
