Why watch this film?

It's common for an artist to have a single, world-renowned hit that defines their name and career. This could be the case of Ray Parker Jr., best known for the iconic theme song from 'Ghostbusters'. But as with many similar cases, Ray Parker Jr. is much more than that. 'Who You Gonna Call? The Story Behind a Hit' is a documentary that breaks this myth, starting with his beginnings as a boy growing up in the violence of Detroit and exploring Parker's prolific career as one of the great composers of the 70s and 80s. It's a somewhat conventional documentary, but the story it tells is truly fascinating, featuring interviews with musicians like Stevie Wonder as well as two legends from the 'Ghostbusters' saga: director Ivan Reitman and actor Ernie Hudson.
