There was no one like Willy DeVille. Deeply respected by his peers from Tom Petty to Bob Dylan, he had the looks. He had the moves. He had the voice. From CBGB Latin punk to New Orleans soul singer to the voice of American roots music on the continent of Europe for three decades, he was the most unique, most romantic artist of his time.  Yet almost no one knows anything about him. That is the mystery of Willy DeVille.  Director Larry Locke explores the personal and professional life of this under appreciated artist. If you like rock and roll but you’ve never heard of Mink Deville, you’re going to leave the theater with some new favorite songs. (Larry Locke, USA, 2022, 87 min.)
