MIFF 2012 Part Seven: Shut Up and Play the Hits

MIFF 2012 Part Seven: Shut Up and Play the Hits

Shut Up and Play the Hits
Wednesday 15th August, 9pm

A compilation of interviews and live footage, Shut Up and Play the Hits is the celebration of a very special band called LCD Soundsystem, and the events surrounding their final ever show.  The film is very much a tribute to James Murphy and the musicians who surround him, although it focuses a little too much on the frontman.  The musical footage, while brilliant, was quite strange to experience while seated in the cinema.  LCD Soundsystem make me want to dance; it’s hard to remain passive and sit still while experiencing what truly was an amazing live performance.
