Review
Based on the real life misdventures of Jackie Prey, tattooist and frontwoman of the working class LA band Clamdandy, this is an all-out estrojam, heavy on the drama with great performances. Gershon leads the team as the bisexual Jackie accompanied by 'Sopranos' moll Drea De Matteo as a strung out trust fund baby and Lori Petty who queers it up as the band's 'too sweet' drummer. The story has to be true because no one would believe that so many tragedies could befall one group of people but behold Prey for Rock and Roll. Desperate for a record contract, the band gig ceaselessly but Jackie's age is catching up to her and the politics of (no) success are dragging everyone down. I couldn't say it better than The Chicago Tribune which calls it a rock story "that, for once, gets the big picture and the small details right". The well-drawn accessible characters and swift plot make Prey For Rock and Roll a surprisingly entertaining flick indeed, and not just for the ladies.
