This is not a music documentary - not solely, anyway. It documents the journey of two separate artists and their transformations not only through life, but on the tour featured within the film. Though the movie is about Rocco Deluca and his band and music, Kiefer Sutherland plays an intricate and intregal part.
The parallels between the two men, like absent fathers, make a connection that doesn't need to be explained. The pain of the artist(s) is made clear, and both men's honesty and openness to the camera makes for wonderful film.
Rarely have I seen a celebrity, let alone one of Sutherland's caliber, be so clear and so true while being filmed in a private setting. Sutherland's words obviously come from the heart, and he reveals so much about who he is. It's more than impressive.
Everyone should listen to Rocco's music. A wonderful songwriter and even better performer, he and his band, The Burden (Dave, Ryan, and Greg) have a unique and moving sound quality. Something I particularly noticed was when Rocco plays, it's like everything else fades back. You can't help but be mesmerized.
