A Thinking Man's Boxing Film
01/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I would rank "Homeboy" along with "Body & Soul" (starring John Garfield),"Rocky" (the first one), "Raging Bull" and "Peniteniary" as one of the best boxing films ever made. A very moody, dark film that is well acted and directed. Mickey Rourke is at the top of his game in this one."
Beautiful film, fantastic soundtrack, glad others think like

"The guitar pieces are great, Eric Clapton and the other artists who have created tracks especially for this, have done themselves proud. Very moody, bluesy, country, a melting pot of musical influences and emotions, very much like the film. I would recommend watching the film as well as playing this soundtrack - the music is a great backdrop to it.

Pretty Baby by JJ Hutto & The New Hawks is a fantastic tune, amongst the others.

My favourites though are the last two, Dixie and Homeboy. If you watch the film, Dixie is at the climax or focal point of the film, and once this is concluded, Homeboy quietly begins and gently rounds off the film in a beautiful way.

You might not like the film, guess it's not everyones cup of tea, but I think its a masterpiece and wonderfully crafted. Incidentally you will see credits on the film for "Eddie Cook". This is actually Mickey Rourke.
