Many people glorify Mr. Tovar for creating exotic music and wearing flamboyant clothes but I thank him for inventing the concept of "naco" in México. That is not a bad thing, Mr. Tovar is part of México's pop culture and in this movie he gets sure to get it damn straight.

To make this quick. The movie centers about Rigo's problem with alcohol and his struggle with success and dealing with it properly. He makes sure to show how success got him into problems and later demonstrated that he could be a "survivor".

The best feature of the movie are the music features. Sure, the choreography and everything is a mess but Rigo has the special charisma and turns those moments into magnificent aspects.

Trivia: Rigo "crated" the synthesizer style mixed with cumbia music. He was a genius on his own.
