Screen Comment

“One of the most remarkable rock stories of recent years.”

—Bilge Ebiri and Miranda Siegel, New York Magazine

“Even in the age of YouTube discoveries and ‘American Idol’-fueled fame, Pineda’s tale stands out.”

—Steve Zeitchik, The Los Angeles Times

“Careful, you might cry a little bit. We definitely welled up.”

Paper Magazine

“[D]emonstrates the shrinking world in the Internet age as well as providing a smart blow against racism back here. Given the fact that no Asian rock band has ever had a huge U.S. career, Pineda’s placement in Journey may provide the highest profile platform ever for someone of his race. Don’t think American Filipinos don’t know it. There’s generous footage of them treating Pineda as a godsend, and, hopefully, a sign of their future. It’s a theme winning enough to woo even the staunchest Journey foe.”

—Jim Farber, New York Daily News

“Within this headline-making rock and roll documentary, there lies a very personal story of survival, of achieving one's dream against all odds and of the courage and hard work required to maintain that dream once it becomes a reality.”
