“It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark, and we’re wearing sunglasses.”
2. Pink Floyd’s, The Wall (1982)
A highly metaphorical journey packed with wild animations that travel through Pink Floyd’s non-linear, sporadic mind.
3. This is Spinal Tap (1984)
“Hello Cleveland!” This movie was so great because according to most 1980’s hair band icons – it’s nearly 100% accurate.

Make no mistake, these Cuban old-timers can play! Some of them are in their 90’s!
6. Tommy (1975)
Freaky visuals and a twisted plot concerning Pin Ball – this is what The Who wants us to see.

“Look at Ray over there. You see that? He feels her wrist because he figures that’s the way to tell if she’s good looking or not.”

A stunning and moving portrait of Joy Division’s singer, Ian Curtis; a man who helped shape 80’s music.
9. Walk the Line (2005)
An inspiring tale of the real “man in black” from Arkansas to Memphis.
10. Detroit Rock City (1999)
