It is strange.
20 October 2005 | by jbladtSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the Vienna film festival. This is not a film about Morrissey. It is about Latinos in East LA and why they like The Smiths. Turns out it's the hair. I fell asleep for five minutes. I met the director afterwords, which entailed hearing him field questions for an exclusively German-speaking audience. Also, there is no music until the credits. You think there will be, but then they don't let you hear it. So if you don't want to listen to The Smiths this is the movie for you. If you do want to listen to The Smiths, then buy a record. This movie is not for children or for people with short attention spans. The best part of the show was the hot indie-rock chicks in the crowd.
