Critic Reviews for Blur: No Distance Left to Run
Neither a weak cash-in nor a by-numbers talking-heads fest, the film boasts exceptional live footage.
Unexpectedly revealing interviews and some stunning live footage make this one of the better band behind-the-scenes.
As the narrative culminates in the spectacular Glastonbury and Hyde Park performances, you feel the sense of celebration - of both the comeback and the career as a whole - is deserved, and Southern and Lovelace do it justice.
It's a genteel ride, best enjoyed by fans, but this film also doubles as the most satisfying account of fractured friendships reforged among 40-year-old Englishmen you'll see this year.
Audience Reviews for Blur: No Distance Left to Run
A brilliant documentary highlighting the highs and lows of one of Britain's most successful groups and of course one of my favourite bands. Gives a really insightful look into the unique friendships each member formed over the course of the band's 20 year career. Absolutely loved it. Defiantly worth the watch! Forgot how much I loved their music.
If you love the band Blur, this is a must see. Equal parts saddening, yet also hopeful in its portrayal of the rise, decline and rise again of one of Britian's greatest modern musical groups. Revealing interviews and riveting concert footage bring you into the lives of the band's four members and personally answer the quetions that have been lurking in fans' minds for years.
WOW. A great, life-affirming music documentary.
I'm a big fan of rock docs, as long as they can keep the out-of-control rock and roll mythology in check. Grant Gee's Radiohead documentary "Meeting People Is Easy" is a prime example of a film that fails miserably at this. Sure, Radiohead were a mysterious band in the 90's, but there was no excuse for how Gee exploited the band's least flattering tendencies and stretched them out to a brutal 90 minutes. "No Distance Left To Run" like any good rock documentary, occasionally flirts with that line, but it never feels excessive. You walk away from the film with real sense of who the members of the band are and the bond that holds them together.
This is a great film. Genuinely touching at times as it shows the band overcoming their well-publicized breakup and getting back together for their reunion gigs at Glastonbury and Hyde Park last year. Being a huge Blur fan, I've been dying to see this for a long time. Totally met my high expectations. Highly highly recommended.
