Insightful, 15 November 2008
Author: from Australia

'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'.
