This documentary is brilliant. Similarly to the above reviewer I work in the electronic music industry, however unlike the above thought it was one of the best music docs I have seen in years. It captures moments on the dancefloor so perfectly and the mood and feelings that go into the music and scene we all love. Yes - if you don't have a background in electronic music you may find it boring and self gratifying, but if that is the case you are very unlikely to be watching it in the first place. The subjects the film maker interviews are incredibly influential in shaping the world of techno and electronic music in general and as such there thoughts are very insightful when you consider the complexities of the music genre. Its not simply ... "people gurning on the dancefloor"..its an art house documentary...what did you expect? If you are into the scene and the music you will enjoy it immensely
