Documentary, Music documentary
This 2007 documentary tracks the experimental-rock group Sigur Rós as it performs in small towns and unusual venues in its native Iceland at the conclusion of an international tour. In addition to the concerts, there are interviews with band members and wide-angle shots of the Icelandic landscape. This immense, overcast, and arresting backdrop contextualizes the band's music, known for its scope (the songs typically run seven to ten minutes) and size (with heavy applications of reverb and frequent use of horn and string sections). This formula makes for a powerful experience on a great sound system after a couple joints, but it's a dull and oddly morose subject for a movie.
