Cinema of the Blues School: Crossroads

Hurricane Bain suggested that the first semester of Blue School include this forgotten gem, "Crossroads." Between "Karate Kid" projects, Ralph Macchio shines as Lightning Boy, a slide guitar vitruoso in New York. With a passion for Bllues music, Lightning Boy journeys south and meets Joe Seneca. As with Blues Road movies, the pair unit and battle the devil in the "Crossroads."

This 1986 cast is offbeat, from Harry Carey Jr. to Joe Morton, a future Blues Brother who portrays "Scratch's Assistant." Lightning Boy has a guitar battle for his soul, with none other than Steve Vai.
