Review by Scottish Onion:

Mainly this is just a film about a bunch of people covering Buddy's work. We get to see them in the studio talking about how they think they can stay true to the music. There are clips of them recording the music and sitting around. Also shown are extensive footage of The Crickets. Interviews with some of them proceed and they wax nostalgic about Buddy and Maria Elena.

There are some good glimpses of rare photos, some anecdotes and some color moving film of Buddy. Not a recap of his life and times per se, but good nevertheless. The CD contains interpretations of Buddy's work, so don't expect to hear some of your favorites. These songs have been stripped down and taken to the next level as shown in the documentary.
