Crossroads is a guitar lover’s film. It is based on the legend that blues great, Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil at the “crossroads” to become a better player. The story follows Eugene Martone (Ralph Macchio) a gifted, classically trained guitarist who is obsessed with blues music and musicians, especially Robert Johnson. He’s convinced that there was a song written by Johnson that was never recorded. In his research he learns about a friend of Johnson’s named Willie “Blind Dog” Brown (Joe Seneca) and tracks him down to a minimum-security hospital in New York. Willie tells Eugene that if he can help him escape and get back to Mississippi, he’ll teach him Johnson’s “missing song”. But unknown to Eugene, Willie really wants to get back to the “crossroads”, where in his youth, he made a deal with the devil in order to become a better blues player. Willie hopes to get out of the deal he made before it is too late. Like I mentioned at the beginning of this review – this is a guitar lover’s film. Though everyone can enjoy it, I think a guitar player may appreciate it a bit more. The duel between Scratch’s (Robert Judd) guitarists Jack Butler (Steve Vai) and Eugene is absolutely amazing. I must have watched the duel over a hundred times since 1986 and it never gets old. I recommend watching this scene with the volume turned up! The direction and acting is solid throughout the film. I personally love the performance of Robert Judd as Legba/Scratch. He’s charming yet very menacing. Exactly what the role requires if you ask me. The score by Ry Cooder (who also plays Eugene’s parts in the film) and Steve Vai is great! The sound of Cooder’s slide guitar really sets the tone and mood of the film. I highly recommend this film!

I have this movie in VHS and I wanted to upgrade it to a DVD. I've watched it many times. It's a great movie! Ordering from Walmart is a good experience, and they have great prices on movies.

I actually didn't watch the movie myself, but the site-to-store experience was awesome. I ordered the movie the week before Christmas for less than $10 (what a bargain!) and it arrived just in time. My brother-in-law couldn't find the movie anywhere and was so excited to get the gift for Christmas.
