Unique and ice cool
20 May 2006 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

A unique film of a live concert. It's shot in a couple of ways; conventional, sepia filtered footage is intercut with Super 8. Rather like the music - sample-heavy, studio-based, soundscape-as-song - trying on a live outfit, the film sets itself up as both a concert document and a film-in-itself.

The result is a bewildering triumph in all respects. The conceptual gamble of the orchestra and band at audience level (with no division save the dolly tracks) pays off - it feels live and genuinely intimate. Add a possessed, shamanic performance from Beth Gibbons, cocooned in the midst of the band, and we get the music like an IV shot. Watching the muted, monochromatic-filtered film was, for me, rather like looking at a painting by Mark Rothko: stripped of the clutter of context or content the experience becomes more direct.

Luckily, the band don't push it. They're not above talking to the audience and the film cuts between the concert and scenes out on the street and footage both prior to and after the show. The end result is a concert that is no more than what it is, without claim or pretence. It's absorbing, oddly moving and almost insurmountably cool.
