I saw this film at the SXSW Film Fest in Austin - waited in line two hours for the pleasure - and let me tell you it was worth every minute. The film is beautiful and profound and really captures the essence of the band and life on the road in general. The Pixies are one of the all-time greats of my youth, so it's a little depressing to see them all grown up and coping with their very adult and normal lives, but on stage they rock like never before (the live footage is remarkably well shot and recorded). Off stage they don't talk much to each other, but somehow the film transcends that and really captures the essence of each of the band members individually as well as the on stage chemistry that makes them tick. Pixies fan or not, Don't miss this one.
