The Movie/Documentary "Speaking In Code" was not what i expected it to be, and with irrelevant things seeming to consume the whole film, i do feel a little let down.
The Movie 'Speaking In Code' got me very excited at first. i thought it was going to be an in-depth exploration of styles of music, the cultures, and the people who make it, similar to the likes of the documentary "Better Living Through Circuitry" or "One Perfect Day", however, this was not the case.
There weren't as many interviews as i would have thought there should have been and the interviews that where on the movie were not really in-depth and didn't show hardly any of the music production. Some interviews with the Dj's/Producers seemed to be more about the problems that they were facing, than their music. There was not any exploration of where this kind of musical scene began, which really let me down.
Heading towards the end of the documentary, i began to realize that throughout the whole movie, it has been more about the problems that the couple filming and directing the movie are facing at this seems to consume the whole movie. i think it had potential to be a great movie/documentary but unfortunately i did not enjoy it as i thought that i would and i think that many others feel the same way.
