Buena Vista Social Club Reviews
We witness a concert, not all of it since the members takes turn on doing interviews and telling their stories to the film crew as it goes on. Wim makes a nice presentation this way, as music is blended in with facts and stories. The story is fascinating but nothing super special.
Cool music, nice fellas and an OK documentary.
6 out of 10 cigars.
I mean the members the of Buena Vista Social Club are fascinating enough but the director Wim Wenders use of real Cuban footage & natural interviews does wonders for the film.
His camera work & sense of timing is brilliant especially the scenes of the Buena Vista club in NYC & the reactions to it. This is a major milestone in documentary filmmaking & music, a top film....a must see...
