Great Documentary
26 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rockets Redglare is by far one of the best written and most moving biographic documentaries I have ever seen. Not only is it about a real human being (Rockets) not hiding any parts good or bad, but tells a bit of New York underground history that many people don't know about. The director Luis de la Reguera has done an outstanding job with the resources available to him and a dedication not seen very often. You can tell that Luis and Rockets had the deepest of friendships which also made this movie all that more original and interesting to watch. The commentaries by some very famous actors are more testament to the greatness and big heart of Rockets even though he had become very hard in many areas of thinking. This movie will allow the spirit and story of Rockets to continue to live on even though he is no longer with us. I hope to see many more movies done by director Luis de la Reguera in the future and am sure the quality will continue and get even better as he progresses through his career.
