  • MARTIN MILLER rated this: 4 stars out of 5.

Great movie about this flamboyant egotistical but brilliantly talented guitar player. This is the first time I had heard of Emmit Ray, but love this style of gypsy swing made famous by Django Rheinhardt, the only other guitar player Emmit placed in his top two, along with himself of course.
Woody Allan does a great job of this biography, using interviews to explain the ambiguity surrounding Emmit.
