Storyline

For nearly two decades, The Chemical Brothers' "mind-bending" audiovisual live show has played to packed houses and festivals across the globe. But it has never been documented on film. Until now. In 2011, at the iconic Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, The Chemical Brothers played a headline set in front of 50,000 fans which was captured on 21 cameras. Immersing us in the thick of a frenetic crowd, Don't Think captures the synaesthetic barrage of sound, film and light and the transforming effect it has on its audience. Directed by Adam Smith, one of the show's visual creators, we are taken on a magical realist psychedelic journey where we feel the show rather than merely watch it. Written by Adam Smith

Awful editing. Do not purchase this DVD
21 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

great Cinematography, great sound recording, great lighting, great performance but AWFUL EDITING! it shows the audience too often. half of the film is just about people raising their arms and showing their armpits...I mean, who wants to see those crowds that often? Many of stereotype editors think that they should contribute the dynamic mood of the concert, by using MTV editing style. Yes, I know that works most of the times. But the Chemical Brothers gig is an exception. Their visual effects are stunning and already perfect. It doesn't need that typical MTV editing. This is like watching the film Avengers and in the screen, the audiences are keep showing. Chemical brothers has the best visual effects for the live show and it's pity that the editors ruined it.
