Storyline

A full concert filmed in late July and early August of 2007 over five of the 11 sold-out nights at the famed Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA. Features seven all new tracks not available anywhere else, along with new versions of fan favorites and a selection of Pumpkins rarities. From the opening note to the final chord, the documentary If All Goes Wrong showcases a band returning with an "enveloping epic force" (Los Angeles Times) as it traces The Smashing Pumpkins during their 19-show residency, which began with eight shows at Asheville, NC's Orange Peel in late June and continued through 11 sold-out nights at San Francisco's famed Fillmore Auditorium. Interviews with band members, fans, journalists and fellow musicians reveal the fears, excitement, determination, exhaustion and tension inherent in main singer-songwriter and lead guitarist Billy Corgan and his newly revitalized musical unit. The documentary also includes Voices Of The Ghost Children, a featurette about the ... Written by Anonymous

'If it all goes wrong' is a well shot documentary that provides insight into the second incarnation of Smashing Pumpkins. Billy Corgan is revealed not to be the despot he is often to be, but rather a idealistic, workaholic songwriter dedicated to his craft. Likewise, Jimmy Chamberlin is revealed to be a central figure in the band, who at one point in the film, helps talk Billy down from his frustrations with the crowd. For those expecting a film about sex, drugs, and rock and roll - there is little of that. Gone are the days of the Smashing Pumpkins renown for the overdoses and members addicted to drugs. Billy Corgan tells the audience on one night that the first thing he was asked when he arrived at the 'orange peel' was if he wanted some weed, which he politely declined. It becomes apparent that Smashing Pumpkins is not about making money for Billy Corgan. He at one points admits that the residency was always going to be a loss. Jimmy Chamberlin and Billy Corgan are sticking true to the concept of what 'alternative music' was all about in the 90s - they aren't going to let themselves turn in a band touring on their 'greatest hits'. Probably the most interesting documentary about a band since 'Metallica: Some Kind of Monsters'.
