A Desperately Disappointing Look At An American Subculture Revival

Unfortunately, this pop culture documentary (about the resurgence of 1950s' music and fashion trends today) certainly left a whole lot to be desired.

Personally speaking - I found that the "Kats & Kittens" taking part in this American subculture revival to be way out of touch with reality for my liking. IMO - It was all "in-your-face" fanaticism here that clearly involved lots of very serious drug-taking by its extremist participants.

I mean - Let's face it - The eccentric people presented in this documentary were all desperately crying for attention and the only way that they knew how to get the attention of others was by making the most absurd fashion statements imaginable and not by doing anything that involved mature intelligence.

1950's Time Capsule

This documentary focuses on the subculture of rockabilly music and its very avid enthusiasts. Most of the film appears to have been shot at the annual Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend, held at the Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Rockabilly music emerged in the early to mid 1950's, and is often described as a combination of country music and blues. As one rockabilly musician states the Vegas get-together is a "nostalgic salute to a quaint slice of Americana and how it's like being trapped in a 1950's time capsule".

The heart of the documentary is really the love of the genre by its enthusiasts, where they can feel the unconditional acceptance of their peers. They thrive in the rockabilly culture of music, classic cars, pin-up modeling, nostalgic hair styles, and tattoos.

All in all, this documentary, directed by Brent Huff, meanders at times but I enjoyed the trip down memory lane and the heartfelt love of rockabilly by its fans.

Great story about a niche topic

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.
