Storyline

In 2001, a photo assistant named Alex Dezen asked a couple of friends to record a few songs with him. Shortly thereafter they would form the Brooklyn based rock band, The Damnwells. Two years later they had toured the country, opened for rock legends and had a song featured in a major motion picture. By 2004, they had signed a major record deal with Epic records (Sony/BMG). In March 2005, The Damnwells went into the studio to record their first professional album. For six months, The Damnwells immersed themselves in preproduction, recording and mixing. But as months passed, their release date was moved further and further away. In January of 2006, lead singer Alex Dezen received a call they never expected. The band was being released from their contract and the fate of the album was unknown. For the moment it would sit on a shelf at Epic records and collect dust. The Damnwells, who had previously recorded their albums in a storage space and their apartments, were not used to waiting. ... Written by Jennifer Grimm

There's a distance in your eyes only mine can see.
16 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see this film as well during the Phoenix Film Festival last year and found it well deserving of the Best Documentary award. In fact, with the twists and turns, the story line could have been one from a regular script and never been questioned.

The humility and frustration comes flying off the screen and makes you cognizant of what a talented band has to experience and undergo to make it in the current music times. I wish I could say I could be so understanding and positive in the light of what happened to them, and say and act how the band, especially the lead singer Alex Dezen, did when their label dropped them because they thought they could only sell 300,000 thousand copies of their album. What band wouldn't love to have that many people listen to their music?

The documentary is full of charm and heartbreaking moments, as well as reflective and beautiful music that shows that The Damnwells have the aptitude to write music that stick with you; such as other artists like Jeff Buckley, and Ryan Adams. Truly a gem.
