Always for Pleasure

Time Out says

Les Blank continues to map the USA's rich heritage of regional cultures, bringing to New Orleans street parades, jazz funerals, and the Mardi Gras itself, the same kind of effusively enthusiastic documentary sensibility that has turned portraits of the lifestyles surrounding blues, Cajun, and Tex-Mex music into full-blooded celebrations. Good-time film-making, ethnography with rhythm: the title says all you need to know about Blank's unique movie on the tributaries of rock'n'roll.
