Avoiding Rock Doc Clichés
19 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I see a lot of these rock and roll quasi documentaries and was particularly impressed with this one. Besides being a bear to edit I imagine, it also stayed clear of the very formulaic Behind the Music format. After subsequent viewings I was really impressed with a few things in particular. First was the apparent honesty. I felt the director addressing Banali's decision to move forward after an obviously grief stricken and bold proclamation of not performing under the QR banner to be interesting. He put his blood sweat and tears into the legacy and made the reformation decision. Director tackled what was viewed as hypocritical by detractors head on. The inclusion of the online criticism and Banali's eventual FU to the cynics was handled well and was very interesting. Secondly, I appreciated how savvy the director handled the traditional "hero/villain" scenario that plagues a lot of these docs. Everyone got their criticism, took their criticism and it was handled with tongue firmly planted in cheek without sacrificing the seriousness of said situations. Specifically Mark and the opportunity and eventual missed opportunity. Finally, I really appreciated the Jeopardy and Dancing With the Stars references showing the cultural impact the band has. Reaching my character limit but BRAVO! See this film now.
