    Wackies: Bullwackie in New York (1986).


    Reggae and dub enthusiasts, you're in the right place. This absorbing, slice-of-life profile (directed by Christopher Coy) of the esteemed Lloyd Barnes, aka Papa Wackie , gives viewers an intimate look at one of the more overlooked yet important figures in Jamaican music. The innovative producer built a mini-empire in the Bronx, NY during the '70s and '80s, launching the careers of his House of Wackie massive, and also established a network for artists to come together through his disco and record shop ventures. The doc, which depicts the gritty New York City of yesteryear, shows Bullwackie in the studio, at the club and in his car, but also finds time to show a friendly game of cricket and a Caribbean couture fashion show. Most of the action, however, centers around the music, which is top-notch. In between, Bullwackie shares his wisdom with other musicians, saying things like, "It's not what you gettin' at the moment for what you're doin'. It is how much you put into it that is important." SEEN!
