A good drama
I grew up Istening to rancheras as my mother was a fan and I love the mariachi singing, music, and the poetry of this culture. This may be a fiction based on El Rey's life, but its an interesting look at an artist's life in Mexico during the 50's and 60's and the Mexican culture based the history of life on the ranch. I agree with some of the reviews that the story line is confusing. The child actor Sabastion Dante is really charming and a talented actor. Perhaps the trauma of his early life was watered down regarding his father's drinking. The scenes when he encounters death are really interesting as it attempts to include the metaphysical aspects of the beliefs of the mexican culture. Vincent has close encounters with death, this may have shaped is character hopefully this story will explore this theme. I don't think its meant to be factual perhaps artistic license was employed. The king of the rancheras is a good story, I hope it gets better. Its good to see more international movies that add variety on netflix. Also biographical stories enrich our sense of latino culture not just crime and narco stories that are prevalent in movies these days.
