LA BAMBA (1987) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Rosana De Soto, Elizabeth Pena, Lou Diamond Philips, Esai Morales, Joe Pantoliano
Directed By:  Luis Valdez
Composed By:  Various

“La Bamba, with its unabashed only-the-good-die-young mythology, is also a glorious, drug-free shot in the arm for romantics. Valens’ life becomes a rock ‘n’ roll fairytale of saintly ambition—and the ‘saint’ here is debuting actor Lou Diamond Phillips.”
—Desson Howe, The Washington Post

“As Valens, Lou Diamond Phillips has a sweetness and sincerity that in no way diminish the toughness of his onstage persona. Mr. Phillips gives Valens backbone.”
—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

La Bamba (1987) tells the brief, ultimately tragic, but uplifting story of Ritchie Valens, born Ricardo Valenzuela in Southern California’s San Fernando Valley. Valens (engagingly played by Lou Diamond Phillips) would have three hit songs before dying at the shockingly young age of 17 in the infamous plane crash that also killed Buddy Holly and J.P. (The Big Bopper) Richardson; his short life—particularly with family and friends in a vibrant Mexican-American community—and obsessive love of music are the focus here. Directed with great warmth by Luis Valdez (Zoot Suit); Valens’ music is performed with crackling energy by the sensational Los Lobos.
