This is a simply brilliant film. If you've ever seen a Chemical Brothers concert you'll love it, if you've ever been to a festival you'll love it, if you enjoy watcing brilliant visuals enhancing excellent music you'll love it. It works on so many levels - the setlist is quite eclectic with a good mix across their career, with some excellent little reworks of various tracks. The visuals are as stunning as you'd expect from a Chems gig, especially one on such a grand scale. But what sets it above nearly all other live concert films is the post production on the visuals, and the immersive use of cameras within the crowd. It's the glimpses of faces of strangers through the crowd, the shared smile lit by a strobe, the closed-eyed-hands-in-the-air rapture of people peaking along with the music that really gets the hair standing up on the back of your neck.
It's a vintage year for old skool idm fans, with this film, Orbital's Wonky and Leftfield's TOURISM all being released in quick succesion. Along with the clubbing episode of 'Spaced - Definitive Collectors' Edition [DVD]', the Glastonbury [DVD] and 'Underworld - Everything Everything Live [DVD]', this is the sort of experience that makes me want to get off my arse and get out there again. And if I can't persuade the wife to come with me she can look after the kids. :-)
I can't recommend this enough. Buy it.
