Above Average Documentary on the Reinvention of a Musician
27 June 2019 | by lchadbou-326-26592See all my reviews

Strange Negotiations, also the title of an album by the artist profiled here, David Bazan, has a well shaped story arc that carries along the viewer who may not be as knowledgeable with the kind of music Bazan plays. A popular figure in Christian rock circles, Bazan has lost some of his crowd when he starts to question the faith he was brought up in, coincidentally around the same time that many US Christians are starting to support the very un Christian character of Donald Trump.The cleverly thought out directorial approach alternates between sweeping overhead views of the landscapes Bazan drives himself through, as he tries to reinvent his audience by playing in smaller house party setups, and tight closeups as we see the musician ruminating about his situation.The film should appeal to fans of indie rock, to those who have gone through a similar crisis of faith, and to those who want to share a glimpse of parts of the American terrain that, as the director has pointed out, are often ignored by the coastal elites.
