Storyline

A young director crosses the ocean to find Emitt Rhodes, the mysterious forgotten American pop star from the 1960s/70s, once dubbed as the secret alter ego of Paul McCartney. But these theories are refuted by Emitt himself, flushed out and placed in front of a video camera after many years spent holed up in his house full of old guitars and vintage amplifiers. His words reveal a past filled with regrets. His voice and his music proving his pure talent. Written by (International Rome Film Festival)

solid and moving film
22 October 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This documentary is solid, occasionally moving and well shot. And gives honor to a musician who deserves that. The film is simple and essential, without useless sentimentalism nor any big ideas excluding the subject itself, but does its work in an interesting and linear way. It could hopefully recreates attention about Rhodes who is still a potential cult hit maker, so let's wait for the second chapter. The director is young and shows a mastery which lacks in many more experienced directors. It's not easy to see good quality documentaries from Italian directors. Really cool film for everybody, it's a story about a human being, but unmissable for pop-rock fans.
