Crossroads (1986)

An excellent movie on one of the PBS stations this evening: CrossRoads, about Eugene, a wanna-be blues guitarist who tracks down Wille Brown, famous for playing harmonica with the legendary Robert Johnson, and goes on a road trip journey with him to Missippi, to seek resolution of a long-standing deal Willie made with the devil sixty years ago. Eventually Eugene wins Willie his soul back by winning a guitar competion against the devil's chosen guitarist, played with enthusiasm by a young-looking Steve Vai. I love this movie. Soundtrack by Ry Cooper. Recommended.
