Critic Reviews for The Story of Lovers Rock
Not all the interviewees are equally interesting, and an audience unfamiliar with the hits and stars may get antsy during some of the reminiscing. But Mr. Shabazz conveys a love of the music and its culture.
Long on people speaking and comedic reminiscence, 'The Story of Lover's Rock' is short on sustained complete performance-examples.
The Story of Lovers Rock, an unapologetically single-minded appeal for the legacy of this music, is amateurish but appealingly shaggy.
You can add The Story of Lovers Rock to the short list of must-see, politically-tinged documentaries which shed light on the cultural roots of a lesser-known musical genre, ala Calypso Dreams and Buena Vista Social Club.
It's the music that matters, and that is put on the screen with real skill and affection.
