Docs That Rock

Disciple of Gondry Films Wild Tour Ride

And now for something cool from across the pond. Partizan Films, the home of the “it” indie director of the moment Michel Gondry, has released a tour film on DVD about Soulwax. Part of the Weekend Never Dies was captured by director Saam Farahmand who shot 120 shows from the Belgium band with one camera and (to quote Partizan’s braggadocio) “captures the adulation, debauchery, ebullience, reflection, cynicism, tiredness, despair, delusion, ridiculousness, contradiction, revelation, exhaustion, homesickness of the life of a DJ/band on the road.” I haven’t seen the full doc so I’m not sure if it can live up to that description but just check out the clip below and even if you’re not into the electronica-fused rock of Soulwax. That’s some spunky editing going on there! Given the U.S. aversion to electronica, this one isn’t available in the states yet. But thanks to the global economy, it can be ordered via Amazon UK.
