Audience Reviews for Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre on Tour

As a band, Le Tigre was lo-fi electronic and punk, embodying a politic that was outspoken, lesbian, and feminist. Fun and freakiness saved them when their heavy-handed message got tedious, as it sometimes does in this documentary.

Director Fix followed the band on their final tour in 2004. Despite their proselytizing, they had fun, incorporating goofy animation and choreography into their shows. Perhaps the most fascinating character in the band was Samson, who looked like a teenaged boy, with a thin moustache and a distinct unibrow. She became the band's unlikely sex symbol.

That doesn't mean that about half of this doesn't get politically pedantic. Also, with such interesting subjects, Fix spends too much time on the mundane.
