Broad and spacious
8 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It certainly takes an acquired taste to see the breadth of opinion in this movie. One commenter has expressed that the movie, as a documentary, is one-sided and promotes only one view of the Coachella festival, which is simply inaccurate.

The Coachella film is primarily concerned with, not the benefits of going or not going to a concert, but the different experiences available to Coachella fans. The breadth of opinion lies, not in whether or not the ticket money is worth it, but in which bands one would prefer to see.

The case in point is the Oasis interview juxtaposed with another artist's interview (his name escapes me). The two interviews, zipped together, provide very different opinions of what a live musical experience is: Is it a political movement? Or is it an opiate? In my opinion, it's one of the best parts of the movie.

Based on the sheer variety of bands, anyone who complains about the musical experience at Coachella must have been simply too lazy to walk to another stage. And the film reflects the same cornucopia of genre: twee, noise, punk, pop, rap, avant-garde... you name it.

POINT: If, the last time someone asked what kind of music you like, you truthfully answered "every kind" or "all kinds," you owe it to yourself to enjoy this movie.
