11.06.06Music Monday Well, Wreckless Eric was there to talk a bit about his involvement with the film (and how he found a VHS copy of this apparently taped off of German TV) and read a few (hilarious) excerpts from his book. That was the highlight.

The beginning credits made a specific point of listing out every song used in the film, then the title itself was photographed on a scrolling marquee. That was cool.

After that it was really slow and really quiet and meandering and had no real point and lasted forever. The plot is a guy gets some kraftwerk tapes from his brother who I guess died so he drives to Bristol. That's it.

The movie was filled with scenes where it'd play and afterward I'd think "that was great. I'm so glad they put that scene in here and made me sit through it. That scene had so many reasons for existing. Sure, I can't think of any right now but I'm sure they're out there." Yes, I thought that whole paragraph of stuff after a lot of scenes... because I had plenty of time to have paragraph-long thoughts cross my mind. a lot.

So... yeah, wasn't too taken with this one.
