Documentary or Music Video?
9 July 2005 | by (Las Cruces, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

Back in the days of the Nickelodeon and on into the silent era, it made sense to provide music in the background during the showing of a video production. You had to do something with the dead time. Even after the advent of the talkies, it was perfectly appropriate to provide mood music to set the tone of a scene.

This is a perfect example of Hollywood overkill. I can't tell if it is a well done documentary about a senseless killing, or a music video with background visual effects. I tried so hard to follow the story line, and was constantly distracted by the moody musical theme that ran throughout the entire production. Somebody tried to get awfully artsy - and bombed.

I love music, but there are times I just have to give up a movie because of music overload. This was a prime example. Even worse was the fact that the volume dropped during dialogue and narration, while it amplified between scenes.

I gave this effort a 5. It should have been an 8, but making me play with my volume button for an hour and forty minutes requires a penalty. I don't know who was responsible for it, but he should be fired - or go to work for Bruce Springsteen. Whichever is worse.
