A bit annoying, but entertaining if you really like Swedish House Mafia
31 January 2011 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

When I knew this film was coming out, I was very excited. Mainly for three reasons: first, because I'm a big fan of electronic music. Second: I'm also a fan of Swedish House Mafia and their individual work. Third: you just don't see a lot of house music artists doing this kind of thing! So yes, I had a lot of expectation about this one.

So I started watching it, thinking I would see a lot of interesting stuff about the guys from SHM, their lives and their career. Now, I don't know if it was bad editing or what, but what I saw was three guys that complain about every single thing all the time. Basically they talk trash about everything and everyone around them: the clubs they go to and its employees, their own crew and their cars. They also talk trash about other celebrities, interviewers, equipments, cities, festivals and even about other DJs - and that's where I kinda draw a line. And this is just what I remember now, I'm sure they complain about other stuff too!

I thought the whole idea was to show us more details of their careers and especially the making of their massive single, "One". Unfortunately, I think that in the end we can't even say that there are 10 minutes of that. So it's really a shame that this documentary makes them look like just a bunch of guys that drink all the time and are never happy about anything, having their stardom coming way over their heads.

Anyway, there are some pretty cool takes on some great festivals around the world, and the soundtrack is awesome too. If you really like Swedish House Mafia and their kind of music, maybe it's almost worth it to check this one out. But you are warned, it could turn out to be just as disappointing to you as it was to me!
