Movie Reviews

What a beautiful, wildly tripped out disc...
Thomas B Goodloe | Richmond, VA United States | 11/22/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This disc is two shows from different VHS tapes put together on one disc. If you want to see the ultimate example of PTV in their acid house phase, this is it. This disc is part concert footage, part imagery, in one tripped out swirling video collage. Even for when it was produced, it still maintains as a visual masterpiece and is amazingly creative. I will say that it takes a certain type of person to appreciate this... namely it helps having been on drugs before to be able to relate. And if you haven't, well, watching this video is about the same thing.

The only reason I give this four stars is because of its narrow audience. It's not for everyone, but very much worth it if you're a fan.
If you CAN relate and you're a Psychic TV fan... this disc is a treat and a wonderful flashback to my favorite incarnation of them. Simply a beautiful disc and a beautiful journey."

"Psychic TV's "Black Joy" is an absolutely amazing audio/visual journey. I must caution viewers that you should not operate heavy machinery or drive after watching this DVD; it left my mind realing for a good 45 minutes after viewing.

The "Black" concert is easier to view; the imagery is still intense but a little more even handed than the "Joy" concert. The "Joy" concert and the imagery is overwhelming; it's almost too much; it did affect me physically; I was disoriented.

I almost gave this DVD a 4 star rating but the Black concert and the IC Water video are absolutely phenomenal.

The audio is very good; I had a few minor issues with the sound; I believe that parts of the shows could have been better mixed; but it's minor.

This is an absolutely unique audio/visual experience."
