Great music, not what I expected from a doc
27 October 2015 | by dylancampbellSee all my reviews

This bit of trivia explains a lot about Junun: "Much of Paul Thomas Anderson's filming equipment was caught up in customs at the airport, and he was forced to use the small camcorder in his bag and his producer's drone for filming all of his shots."

This documentary is extremely minimal in it's narrative. You are mostly immersed in the music-making process and do not get much back story on how these particular artists came together. The music, however, is truly exceptional. The way the songs build and each musician plays their part is often mesmerizing.

Bottom line: definitely worth watching, though I wish the real cameras had made it through customs.
