Storyline

Maestro, tells the story of how a group of people found refuge and a call for life outside the mainstream. What evolved was a scene that set the ground work for what was to come in dance music culture worldwide, a rare insight into the secret underground world. It's the first time this story is told in a motion Picture, included in the film are pioneer dance music DJs and producers, "founding fathers", its center being Larry Levan, as well as high-profile DJs of today. Opting for a more personal and candid approach, MAESTRO shows the true history of the people through a realistic creative aesthetic. Tracing the underground's dance origin, MAESTRO brings out a real understanding of this intense lifestyle, and the lives they lived and died for. Written by Anonymous

I liked it, despite the obviously small budget.
26 August 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can see someone expecting a movie to have more frills. But, I liked the candor, incidental humor, and information the flick provided. True, the movie makes more of itself then it is, but then, what DJ doesn't? It kind of fits together. And in spite of the aggrandizement, comes off as endearing. The styles the subjects wear are worth something just by themselves. If you really want a movie that follows the rules of great movie making, this might not be for you. But if you can put worth on hanging out in a reliably hip neighborhood, and meeting the denizens, without the drawbacks of having to meet them, I think you will be glad you gave this film a chance. Levine himself has an interesting story, worth hearing.
