Most, if not all, believe this movie is a reflection of poor, black Americans in the early 70s. I have news for you, this movie is a reflection of ALL poor Americans in the early 70s. Look beyond ethnicity to see the story being told. Which is, being poor and living on the other side of the tracks is a criminal sentence of its own. Unless you're corporate welfare, then we readily open our wallets.
Loved this biopic!! I was in Jr. High when I fell in love with Motley Crue. Shout at the Devil had just been released. So much I didn't know about the band's trials and tribulations. Everyone knew about their drug and alcohol fueled lifestyle in the 80s. Still one of my top 3 band's.
