3.0 out of 5 stars Has the scope, but not the depth, 8 Jan 2008
This documentary does a pretty good job in covering the majority of note worthy electronic music of the 20th century. From the early electronics and music concrete of Karlheinz Stockhausen and Pierre Henry, to electro of Kraftwerk and Can, right though to detroit techno pioneers Juan Atkins and Derrick may. The problem is that the whole thing comes across like some hippy rave video. It lacks any proper narration and all the interviews are just so short and shallow that you barely get anything more than an introduction. Then by the end it completely looses any direction at all, and just rambles aimlessly from pointless footage of some obscure rave in germany to interviews with 'avant-garde noise terrorists' that no ones ever heard of. And this edited with needless MTV style stock footage of random stuff. Dont get me wrong, it's on the right track to start with, but it just takes off a bit to quick and de-rails. Check out Pump Up The Volume or Scratch if you want to see a well made, well research documentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cubetastic!, 19 May 2005
This review is from: Cube [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
A group of strangers wake up in a big rubix cube loaded with all kinds of nasty traps and no memory or how they got in there.
So simple but so effective. Only filmed in 2 rooms and on a fairly low budget but the basic premise of escaping this big torture maze and holding it together makes this one fantastic little film.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Film I've Ever Seen, 19 May 2005
This review is from: Buffalo 66 [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
Buffalo 66 is an emotional story centred around the character of Billy Brown, a pathetic outcast who is released from prison, having served a short sentance for another man to repay a gambling debt on a football game.

He then proceeds to kidnap a girl from her dance class and takes her to meet his dysfunctional parents following an extended scene in which Billy Brown attemps to relieve himself. The film concludes with Billy persuing a vendetta against a football player, who Billy blames for the debt which ruined his life.

This film is funny and sad, romantic and pathetic all at the same time without ever really trying to do any of those things. The plot is compelling, the setting bleak, the directing magnificent and acting is great with even the support cast bringing substantial resonance. Also Gallo's music adds incredible depth to the film.

It's without a doubt my favourite film of all time and I'm yet to meet anyone that didnt love it. Definatly Vincent Gallo's finest hour.
