A big music clip
5 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

The director himself said he was supported by Wim Wenders. But where's the inspiration that made Buena Vista S. C. ? The film is a long (too long) compilation of various Jamaican music artists (some are even lost in their own paradoxes - peace, violence ? - which the director isn't able to highlight). We'd been waiting for a special input, a guide to this music ; instead we're getting a well built editing of music clips, with the classical usual interviews between them to remind us that we're in front of a product which is pretending to be a documentary. Not at all. Splitting a few interviews between music bits takes more talent to make us hang on 100'. The set of Jamaica is almost absent, very little of the music context is shown; the concept of poverty explained by newly come wealthy stars isn't enough to explain and justify reggae & dancehall. This old recipe of making documentaries is tasteless in Laperroussaz cuisine.
