critical film studies: SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS.
as a documentary about what happens off stage, the film is contemplative but rarely insightful (though pleasantly free from idol worship), but what the film does to document LCD Soundsystem‘s last concert was really spot on and refreshing. the final scenes were exceptionally good.
i didn’t see the last show at madison square garden, but i saw the second to last show at terminal 5, and the documentary definitely brought me back…
the film does well to faithfully capture moments in time – particular moments that come out of other particular moments. from pulse films, good stuff.
