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.
