Movie Info

Award-winning filmmaker Hector Galan turns his camera on San Angelo-based "Texican" trio Los Lonely Boys as they hit the road to tour and bring their unique brand of music to eager audiences all across North America. As children, the three Mexican-American brothers were inspired by the unique sounds of the San Angelo, Texas music scene. Later, the trio would learn to harness that unique style while infusing their music with a decidedly personal touch. When San Angelo-based documentary filmmaker Galan learned of Los Lonely Boys, he immediately realized that their remarkable tale possessed the power to inspire musicians from all backgrounds. In addition to exploring brothers Henry, JoJo, and Ringo Garza's Mexican-American roots, the film also attempts to place their music within a cultural perspective that truly captures a magical moment in time where it all came together for the trio. Though their father may have never realized his dream of achieving musical stardom, the seeds that were planted for the three brothers eventually blossomed into something larger than anyone in the close-knit family could have ever anticipated.

Critic Reviews for Los Lonely Boys Cottonfields and Crossroads

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

It never stops worshiping Los Lonely Boys, the Texas trio made up of the brothers Henry, Jo Jo and Ringo Garza, long enough to feel genuine, as is evident from the frequent appearances of Kevin Wommack, the group's manager.

Although it often plays more like a feel-good infomercial than a substantial cinematic portrait, Los Lonely Boys: Cottonfields and Crossroads scores a pleasing impact with spirited live performances.
