This comes onto the TV occasionally, but butchered with adverts. My home-recorded copy was no good anymore, so I decided to buy a proper copy. This is a seriously underrated film, and Ralph 'Karate Kid' Macchio's finest hour. He plays Eugene, a teenage music student in New York obsessed with the Blues, especially Robert Johnson. He finds an old bluesman (Joe Seneca) living in a secure old people's home, finishing an indefinite sentence for murder, and is convinced that this is Robert Johnson's friend, Willie Brown. The old man persuades Eugene to break him out of the home and back to Mississippi in exchange for a lost song by Johnson. They have to hitch there way after the money runs out. Eugene is a technically gifted player but starts out having no 'Mileage'. During the trip they encounter all sorts of prejudice and corruption and Eugene has his heart broken by fellow traveler, Jami Gertz. By the end of the trip Eugene has experienced enough to enable him to play the blues with real feeling. This is a road movie and a coming of age movie as well as being about the search for the song and how to play the Blues. Legend has it that Johnson sold his soul to the Devil, as in 'Crossroad Blues'. In the film, Willie Brown did the same and wants to escape the contract before he dies. The big scene at the end features a guitar duel between Eugene and a devilishly good heavy rock guitarist played by Steve Vai, the prize being Willie's soul. Well acted, especially by Seneca, ably directed and with a brilliant score by Ry Cooder this is a top film. The soundtrack album is also well worth buying, although it lacks the guitar duel, for contractual reasons.

A very entertaining film that has always suffered from being underrated. Because of the famous "head-cutting duel" scene, many people have written it off as just being for electric guitar fanatics but it's much more than that and I'm sure that in the future, it will achieve cult-movie status.

I absolutely loved this film. I enjoyed the Karate Kid films and can't help but compare it to them. Instead of the Karate Master Mr Miagi, Macchio's character finds an old famous blues musician as a mentor, who offers to teach him a long lost song by famous blues guitarist Robert Johnson whom legend had it sold his soul to the devil for musical talent at the crossroads.

Most of this film is a journey through America, and it shows a broad spectrum of American life and culture while exploring the characters and human nature. As the film progresses, you get more and more of a feeling that 'something is up' and the old man maybe doesn't really have a 'long lost Robert Johnson song' to teach Eugene.

Eventually they wind up in Mississippi and end up meeting 'Scratch' and the talk about deals with the devil comes full circle. Eugene doesn't believe in it, and ends up putting his soul on the line for the old man.

The characters in the film are warm and likeable, the music is good and the music scenes are well paced, and the guitar duel at the finale is breath-taking. All in all this is a great film for those who enjoy the journey, and those who appreciate skillful musicians.

Watching this film is like stepping back in time before the advent of mobile phones,climate change and manufactured music that passes for entertainment these days.
If you like the blues,especially Delta Blues,then this is for you,it has a bit of everything,wonderful,countryside scenes,a rather up and down relationship betwixt the two main characters Blind Dog (Joe Seneca) a dyed in the wool Bluesman,and Lightning Boy (Ralph Macchio) the understudy who thinks he knows it all,plus two wonderful cameos from Jamie Gertz (Frances) and Steve Vai (Jack Butler).
Although the film is essentially about the Blues there is an awful lot more beside,humour,ridicule,sadness and romance all are there and really it is a film about payback and fulfillment and self-belief.
So take time to watch this,it is a masterpiece,take yourself into the Mississsipi Delta and spend some time with these characters,it makes two hours of so pass so quickly and pleasurably,the final duel between Vai and Macchio (on guitars I may add) is unsurpassed in any musical I've seen,and makes for a wonderful ending.
As I say if you like Blues or Rock you will love this,if you don't you'll still enjoy it,films are not made like this any more and music,well,need I say more,go on buy it you won't be disappointed!
