A clerk in a government agency finds his unenviable life takes a turn for the horrific with the arrival of a new co-worker who is both his exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and seductive with women.
This DVD doesn't capture the live excitement that live performance by the Arctic monkeys, accessible on youtube, do. The Glastonbury videos are way better than this. That doesn't stop the music from being great though.
The concert really focuses on Alex Turner (singer) and Mat Helders (drummer) with the other two members occasionally appearing from the shadowy sides of the stage. Alex Turner lives up to expectation as does Mat Helders, but the band as a whole seems bored and almost as uninterested as the crowd, a fact that Turner points out early in the show.
This is an enjoyable watch but only for fans. The bass is overdone and the way it is shot and edited is pretentious, it tries to be tricky without actually requiring much effort. This DVD costs around NZ$40, so if you can get a preview, unless you're a hardcore fan and will love it anyway.
