03.21.15Internet This is a doc about the 90s rock band Morphine and its lead singer/bass player Mark Sandman. I really fucking loved Morphine when I was in highschool and college and remember being pretty bummed out when I heard the news of Sandman's death. I think they put out 5 or 6 albums and although each album had some pretty far out free jazz sort of stuff that was a bit too much for me, each album also had several amazing tunes that really stuck with me till today. So it was good to learn the story of the band (I never knew it came out of another band, Treat Her Right) as well as hear recollections... I will say though that the movie kind of drags. It doesn't help that I watched it in 480p on youtube but... there's a lot of 16mm footage and stills that are just inserted out of nowhere. Unfortunately the story of the band probably makes a good 60 minutes so stretching it out even to 85 made it lag for me. It did put me in the mood to revisit all those albums though...
