Hope, dreams and a sure lack of glory

"I am a biased reviewer. The filmaker was a student of mine. That being said the film and the band are everything I want in a movie. It is not fomulaic. It is not sensationalized. It is a truth that many of us share in our own lives. We all try to be a hero (or should) in our own small way and Lucero, the band certainly does that. They do what they do because it IS what they do. The same goes for this film. This will not make anyone rich. It will not attract Leonardo DeCaprio, however both the band and the movie are worth more than most Amerian commercial films. I enjoy feeling good about life. I enjoy feeling like there is a point to what I do. This movie moves us all closer to a life that has meaning. I want the best for Lucero, a chance to keep playing music for as long as they want. Bravo Mr. Goldman!"

"Lucero tells it like it is and this documentary captures the essence of the band. It is a great portrayal of a band that is working hard (touring 250 days a year) to realize their dream of making music."
