Product Description

This film traces and reviews the fascinating history of industrial music, via its 1970s origins, through its enormous rise to prominence in America in the late 1980s and throughout the 1990s with NIN as the focal point, to culminate with the current activities of Trent Reznor as he uses marketing and promotional initiatives in a manner just as creative as the music he continues to compose.

Product Description

Ottimo documentario dedicato alla storia del genere industrial, che prende ispirazione nel titolo dal controverso disco di Lou Reed del 1975. In un film di più di due ore viene ripercorso l'affascinante sviluppo della musica industriale dalle sue origini negli anni '70, alla fase inglese di Throbbing Gristle e Cabaret Voltaire fino alla sua ascesa su vasta scala in America a fine anni '80 e poi nel corso dei '90. Come punto focale sono scelti i Nine Inch Nails, di cui vengono prese in esame anche le recenti pubblicazioni che hanno sconvolto piani marketing e strategie discografiche. Nel film compaiono interviste con Genesis P.Orridge (PTV), Chris Vrenna e Richard Patrick dei NIN e molti esperti del settore. Il tutto è condito da rare performances di Depeche Mode, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Skinny Puppy, Ministry e ovviamente Nine Inch Nails.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE STORY OF INDUSTRIAL AND NIN 27 May 2010
This DVD first gives us an in-depth history of the emergence of industrial music and its development up to and including Nine Inch Nails. Of interest are interviews with Genesis P'orridge regarding the early scene's attitude to music and music-making. Although of minority interest, Throbbing Gristle and bands like them drove music onto a different path that became known as industrial. It was up to bands like NIN to popularise it. NIN was the bridge between different sides of the industrial movement and became a focal point.
This early history sets the scene for a study of Nine Inch Nails, album by album. Trent Reznor's methods and development as an artist are examined and, whether you agree with the opinions expressed or not, there are some interesting perspectives. Of interest is the assertion that all aspects of NIN have been carefully worked out and nothing left to spontaneity including the early live performances when Reznor physically attacked his fellow band members on stage. It is stated that Reznor has always been clever about his image - something perhaps that in 2010 fans may now want to question.
Several journalists and music critics are featured including NIN biographers Alan Cross and Tommy Udo. Featured also are past NIN members, Rich Patrick and Chris Vrenna. Although the DVD is not authorised there are plenty of clips from live performances, videos and some interviews.
Although it might be said that there isn't a lot new here for the seasoned fan, still I found the opinions of the journalists interesting and I enjoyed the anecdotes from former band members. I would certainly highly recommend this DVD. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars LARGELY EXCELLENT 22 July 2014
A curious account, this one. It's basically a NIN bio, unauthorized, but legitimized by the participation of former Nails Chris Vrenna and Rich Patrick, who have both gone on to successful careers in their own bands (Tweaker and Filter, respectively). Other writers and critics also have their say regarding Trent Reznor's rise, from his synthpop roots to his well-publicized battles with former record company TVT, to his recent experiments in alternative marketing and his successful back-to-DIY aesthetic. It's a solid and critical appraisal of NIN's albums. Clips from promo videos and live footage bolster the film well, as do some fine interviews with Jared Louche (of Chemlab) and Eric Powell (16 Volt) - both peers of Reznor. On the other hand, at least one writer featured here is purely sycophantic in his adulation/adoration for NIN...good for a chuckle at least.
What's most curious about this DVD is the first half-hour or so, which takes a whole different tact entirely. This is an examination, of the beginnings of so-called 'industrial' music - highlighted (and indeed, made by) an extensive interview with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. It's telling and fascinating, hearing it in her own words. Bits and pieces of live footage of Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Throbbing Gristle, Einsturzende Neubauten, Cabaret Voltaire, and Depeche Mode litter this pre-NIN history. It's nice, though far from thorough. I'd really love to see this all expanded upon, with other important inspirations like Varese, Kraftwerk, Test Dept, Whitehouse, Boyd Rice, Front 242, and others included. But that's a whole different story altogether.
As it is, this 2+ hour documentary is an exceptional watch for NIN fans - offering some insight and rare footage. Maybe it is a bit surface, but this may be as close as we'll ever get to a true and definitive bio of Reznor and his NIN persona.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Industrial Music for Industrial People" 5 Nov 2010
This is a must item for not only Nine Inch Nails fans but fans of Industrial Music's early beginnings up to present day. A thoroughly entertaining and in depth look at the very humble beginnings and innovations of Throbbing Gristle up to a full account of Nine Inch Nails discography. Great interviews with numerous artists. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars great for NiN fans 6 Mar 2010
By Dayvido - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the DVD starts off with how Industrial music started... it goes on on that for about 40min. then when it hits NiN it pretty much leaves out any Industrial band that was after them... I got this DVD because of NiN so I really enjoyed watching it but if you want to buy a DVD about Inustrial music and bands I dont thik this is for you. The DVD covers Pretty Hate M. all the way to "The Slip" It has awesome interviews and clips of nin Vids. No Trent though. I would say this is a great buy for hardcore NiN fans! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars What everyone else has said, plus... 13 Oct 2011
By Nanshe - Published on
The interviews with Richard Patrick and Chris Vrenna about the early days of Nine Inch Nails ALONE make this worth watching: Chris sounds like he was deeply in love with Trent and Richard like he was (and is) deeply in love with himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for NIN fans 12 April 2012
By Monkey King - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched this documentary from start to finish. It doesn't touch heavily on NIN or Trent for a while because it focuses on the rise of industrial music and some other bands, but once 1988 rolls around, it begins with how Trent became involved in music, how he wrote his first album (Pretty Hate Machine) and then goes through his entire career and life experiences and how the media and culture responded to it in detail, all the way through to The Slip. I have always idolized Trent Reznor and this documentary has helped me to idolize him more and to truly understand just how incredible of a thing he has done with his music. I highly recommend this for anyone who has any kind of respect for NIN and/or Trent Reznor.
