Completely honest, insightful and very fitting
2 April 2017 | by sonixmusic-90137See all my reviews

As a huge fan of The Sound, I was afraid this would be a typical sensationalist 'rock doc'. It wasn't. Besides some very interesting insights into the (criminally underrated) group and their music, it discusses the topic of mental illness with care and sensitivity. Viewers are left to draw their own conclusions. The documentary seems to possess the same kind of honesty and integrity as the band did. What's more, it offers a great sense of what the early 80s post punk/wave/goth/new romantic scenes were like. And even though the research has clearly been thorough, the enigma remains intact.
