High NRG psychedelic ZENTA montage
4 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a 30 minute collage of vintage historic MC5 footage taken by band photographer and documentary artist Leni Sinclair. Some of the earliest known footage dates from 1966, perhaps earlier. There are shots from the infamous Grande Ballroom, the Detroit "Love-in" on Belle Isle, and outdoor summer free concerts in Ann Arbor. It is filled with live concert recordings that try to match the visuals -- but are not always "in-sync" - there's a bonus track with MC5 manager John Sinclair recorded at "Jim's Wimpy Burgers" an Ann Arbor landmark greasy-spoon. Sinclair recollects the first meeting and early days with the MC5. It's an honest presentation of the MC5 at the beginning and early heights of their short but influential career. It shows an ongoing effort to convey the psychedelic elements and light-show effects of the day. It is one of the few "approved" projects by all members and estates of the MC5, and well worth viewing for fans of the Detroit high-energy rock scene.
