weak interviews and a couple satisfying performances
28 January 2006 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie only expecting to see a couple good performances (which i did see a few) and beyond that I had no idea what to expect.

Beyond 4 or 5 performances this movie is drivel. I sat there with my head barely above water during multiple redundant interviews about how the festival is this escape from the turmoil of politics, from hate, and especially the festival brings everyone together. I don't know if the filmmakers know how hollow their message is, and all this stuff about equality and love is totally ridiculous because they only interview white hippie kids.

How about... a documentary about coachella could give accounts of DIFFERENT peoples experiences at the festival and what it means to them. I mean how "equal" and "fair" is a festival that costs 200+ just for the ticket, forget about travel and lodging.

I do thank the filmmakers for the arcade fire, fischerspooner, white stripes and flaming lips performances. They were really fun to watch. There should have been more music and less repetitive commentary. Did i say there were repetitive interviews and redundant commentary? Because there was quite a bit of that.

I have a stale taste in my mouth.
