Great Film, Great Sounds
on 18 September 2001
Although not a new film, if you are a fan of 50's music then this is the film for you. Most of the musical content is provided by Los Lobos who add the authentic Latino feel.
The film is based on the true life story of the ill fated Ritchie Valens. Lou Diamond Phillips did an excellent job of portraying the main character during his (Ritchie Valens) short but successful rise to stardom in the 50's.
In fact all the main characters are so well portrayed and so convincing that on more than one occassion I had to clear a tear from eye.
This is a film that I have and will continue to watch over and over again.
