The Ventures: Stars on guitars is a really entertaining documentary about the wildly popular band The Ventures. Honestly, I had no clue who they were before this documentary, now I know I have heard a few of their songs through motion picture soundtracks.
Staci Layne Wilson, daughter of Don Wilson from The Ventures. Told me it took a lot of time and effort to put this all together, and Staci, I can tell you it pays off marvelously. Every interview and archives included in this documentary are knockouts. Billy Bob Thornton really shines in his interviews and you can tell the influences The Ventures had on his music.
Rather your a newbie or a seasoned vet to The Ventures this is a really eye opening documentary that you can tell was made with a whole lot of heart and joy. I’m excited to see if Staci does any more documentaries or movies she has a real knack for storytelling.
Overall grade: 4/5 stars
