Movie Reviews

It's OK, some great moments
Matthew Mcgowan | Auckland, New Zealand | 06/12/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"It's a nice little journey with the band and its enjoyable seeing a bunch of guys back from suburbia to rock out after two decades.

There are some great moments when the likes of Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo (among others) have a play with Mission. Maybe i am just exposing my shallow lust for live SY. Don't get me wrong, i watched Not a Photograph a couple of times, so its an intriguiing story. And its nice to see a lesser known, more adventurous band still resonanting with so many people (young and old(ish)) 20 years after the fact.

I guess though being young and from New Zealand, i was hoping for more footage of live performances, historic and present. Similarly i found the 'dvd extras' a little disappointing in this respect as well. I just wish they could have jammed in a heap more footage from their recent gigs, for us antipodean folk.

So in summing; its decent, but of the similar doco's i have seen, Fugazi's Instrument still shines in my mind."
