I thought this film was fantastic.

A candid, genuine, infinitely interesting look at what animates the heart(s) of electronic music.

Rather than attempt to summarise/historicise/categorise any aspects of electronic music, the film focuses on several characters and their own stories (including some pivotal figures of modern techno), and lets the film evolve on it's own terms. To me, I don't think there is way to tell it any better.

I don't think the criticisms levelled at the film are fair. The style of the film is different to other documentaries, but if we never allowed people freedom in their methods there wouldn't be any electronic music to make a film about. And for me, I felt that the decisions made by the filmmakers were good ones, and helped to form the backbone of the movie, without taking anything away from the more well known characters.

The only minor criticism I have is that I felt that the subtitles were used with a bit too much frequency.

Overall highly recommended.
