Storyline

Rockabilly is a subculture whose members operate as if they are living in the 1950's. From the music to the tattoos, pin up girls, hot rod cars and vintage fashion, this lifestyle gives creative people a place where they feel empowered. Rockabillies don't fit the mold of what American culture says is 'normal.' This scene makes invisible people visible. Simple as that. A Rockabilly's greatest fear is not being noticed.

Great story about a niche topic
18 August 2017 | by ckato-03959See all my reviews

I went into this knowing nothing about rockabilly (other than Elvis) or anything that comes with that lifestyle. What I saw was a surprisingly and supremely entertaining doc slice of Americana.

I like learning about new things and new cultures, and this was light, funny, and filled with interesting characters and fun music. I didn't realize how seriously people take this stuff and it was fascinating to watch how meticulously they make their hair and how beautiful their look makes them feel.

I had no idea Drake Bell was into this, although in retrospect it now makes total sense. You see a good deal of him in the flick, so if you're a fan, it's definitely worth checking out. The rest of the cast, I'm not sure how popular they are outside of the rockabilly world, but it doesn't really matter because they're all interesting. Jimmy Angel was a shortstop for the Yankees ions ago and how his best friend is a teddy bear. You can't make this stuff up.

Brent Huff, the director, does a great job keeping the film moving. It never gets dull, and really can't with this kind of subject, but it never dwells too long on one thing and he does a good job of showing how diverse this crowd is and showing off the idiosyncrasies of these people and some of the fun parties and events they have for themselves.

It's similar to Comic-Con, if you're into that. They seem to be very open and welcoming to outsiders. But if you're into colorful characters and colorful costumes - and completely non-fictional, there's no reason you shouldn't enjoy "It's a Rockabilly World".

In fact, it's worth it just for the music. That's the reason I watched it in the first place. I figured the music would be good. And I wasn't disappointed.

Check it out! It's a fun time.
