A teenage orphan fights against the Red Army at the end of WWII and in the aftermath is 'adopted' by a Commissar. Years later he is sent to London during the Cold war to work for the KGB, where he questions his life.
On April 2nd 2011, LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden. Documenting this once in a life time performance and an intimate portrait of James Murphy as he navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the personal and professional ramifications of his decision.
A documentary on the once-promising American rock bands The Brian Jonestown Massacre and The Dandy Warhols, and the friendship/rivalry between their respective founders, Anton Newcombe and Courtney Taylor.
Rather than go on and on I watch this every day at the moment and have done for a month.
Rather than go on and on I watch this every day at the moment and have done for about a month. If you like JD you will like the doco. I usually put this on because I have only owned the album "Substance" which is a collection of JD not an actual album. I put the doco on, usually after and listen to it like music with all the stories and performances. I love it. Their music was so modern it stands up to the test of time. The doco itself is a well put together, linear story told by surviving band members, all those people you remember from "24 Hour Part People" and more. get it and watch it more than once because there is a lot in there. Top marks.
