Running at just over 90 minutes, the film really gets into the everyday life of the band. What you see isn't just the stage performances and the fun. It's the day to day nature. The people surrounding you. The press. The interviews. The never-ending noise. There's a point during the film where Thom talks about this constant noise he had in his ears that just wouldn't go away. In many ways it can be quite off-putting to budding musicians to see what the working life of a band this size is really like.
You will also find lots of unreleased songs being played throughout. It's was nice originally to go through and hear the songs you hadn't heard before. But Radiohead b-sides and unreleased material are so well documented and easy to obtain these days, that most of it won't be new to you. Overall, it is simply intriguing to see the ways in which the band work, how things affect them and how the world was on top of them at times. There isn't another documentary like it, but the price is still very high for the limited material.
The DVD case is flimsy, but the artwork is, as usual, very well presented. It's a shame that this isn't coupled with '7 Television Commercials' in one, but if you are willing to pay the high price it really is worth it.
1.Witnessing the efforts of Thom during the filming of No Suprises only to be dismissed as 'music to cut your wrists by' by a panel enjoying cake (no, really.)
2.The child-like grin on Thom's face when Jonny talks about getting back into the recording studio after a soul destroying tour
3.The band attempting to record an acceptance speech for a music award.
A must for true radiohead fans
Obviously this is an understatement, and it's one of the finest albums ever. But Radiohead "didn't think anybody would like it," and certainly weren't prepared for the media onslaught that would follow it. This DVD charts their tour, and explains precisely why Thom Yorke seems so very upset most of the time. Suddenly the band are hounded by inane questions and ceaseless interviews, as if nobody actually wants just to listen to the music any more.
There are other reactions, which drive Yorke equally potty. One live clip shows the disgusted singer looking on, as the crowd sings Creep louder than him. Will people ever get over the band's achievements of old and let them progress?
Then there's the big one - "Radiohead are depressing." We see the infamous reporter watching the No Surprises video, and labelling it "music to cut your wrists to." Utterly failing to understand the kind of pressure Radiohead are under, and how that comes across in their lyrics, it's just a staple example of the people who will simply never get this amazing band.
The rest of the band take most of this in their stride, grinning all the while about how silly it all is. So by the end of the DVD, Yorke's ceaseless unhappiness becomes a little hard to bear (come on, nobody made you do this). But it is easy to empathise with how lost he feels, and the abstract weirdness of Kid A will, soon enough, make perfect sense.
But as a DVD, rather than a long explanation of Radiohead, this is lacking. Only 2 chapters, and only scattered snippets of live songs. Some are tantalising and new - Life In A Glasshouse, I Will - but the only songs we get entirely are Exit Music and Pearly.Read more ›
The video is NOT just a documentary; it's not meant to be, it accompanies O.K computer especially as a map to where Radiohead came from and where they were going. Thom memorably comments in Meeting People Is East that "O.k. computer is about everything being out of control" as the best explanation told him yet for O.K computer. Schizophrenic visuals of escalators, business men, construction sites and roads emphasise the strangeness of the world Radiohead are in now; to call radiohead pretentious on seeing this is absurd, they're merely documenting what's around them, IT is strange, not them; we see many moments or complete normality amongst band members, jonny being to shy for T.V interviews, Thom bemused about how hyped up radiohead and child like wide eyed wonder as they are taken on a private jet for the first time!
The new songs sound good; you get to hear first glimpses of several unreleased gems as well as must-see moments like when Thom plays "How To disappear completely" for the first time; interesting to anyone who likes how it turned out, likewise with Life In A glasshouse.
Meeting People Is Easy does what it is supposed to; it is an accompaniment to O.K computer, it is revealing without being intrusive.Read more ›
