My Way (2012/MVD Visual DVD)

Picture: C Sound: B- Extras: B Documentary: C+

Rebekah Starr is an up and coming rock musician from Pennsylvania with big dreams, who decides to document her move to Los Angeles in an attempt to break into the big time and ends up as the next big musical success on the Sunset Strip. Using the life of a rockstar as a sort of escape from her crumbling marriage, Rebekah pushes her passions to the limit in order to achieve her goals even it takes hurts a friend or two in the process in My Way (2012), co-directed by Dominique Mollee and Vinny Sisson.

The film stars out with her humble roots and duo of friends that help get her start. She is constantly butting heads with foreign friend Annika, who comes along for the journey and once they land in L.A., starts to get easily offended and feeling like an outsider to the band. They start to get some notice, however, as Rebekah pushes and helps enjoy life outside of her element.

The documentary features interview with some big names in Rock including Rikki Rockett (Poison), Steven Adler (Guns N' Roses), Chip Z' Nuff (Enuff Z'Nuff), and pornstar Ron Jeremy that give different outside perspectives on the music industry and how they know the girls personally.

Presented in an anamorphically enhanced standard definition with a 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio, most of the film is shot on low budget digital video and have some interlacing issues. Most of the interviews are shot on finer HD and look a bit better. The audio track is lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo track that sounds fine due to the low budget nature of the film.

Special Features include Interviews with Rikki Rockett (Poison), Steven Adler (Guns N' Roses), Chip Z'Nuff (Enuff Z' Nuff'', Music Videos for Rebekah Starr Band's My Way, Irrational Boy (starring Ron Jeremy), and a Theatrical Trailer.
