Alex Lora, Rock 'n' Roll Slave

El Tri was one of the first Mexican rock bands to write songs in Spanish, and its lyrics identify strongly with the working class, but you'd never guess either from this adoring concert film. Director Luis Kelly provides no history or perspective as he follows the veteran musicians on tours of South America and the U.S., just fart jokes and endless hard-rock performances. The overwhelming focus is on lead singer Alex Lora, who plays a bass custom-built in the shape of a hand, its neck an extended middle finger that shoots white liquid on the audience; returning the compliment, thousands of screaming fans lovingly address him as “Asshole.” In Spanish with subtitles. 120 min.
