Movie Info

For nearly two decades, the Chemical Brothers "mind-bending" audiovisual live show has played to packed houses and festivals across the globe, but it has never been captured on film until now. NCM Fathom, Omniverse and EMI Music come together to present "The Chemical Brothers Don't Think." Originally captured in 2011, at the iconic Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, this event captures the synesthetic barrage of sound, film and light and the transforming effect it has on its audience. Fans will also be able to gain access to never-before-seen behind the scenes footage and an exclusive interview with Adam Smith, the concert's director and visual creator of live shows.

Critic Reviews for Chemical Brothers: Don't Think

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

It's when the viewer's response mirrors that of the filmed audience - jaw dropping as terrifying clowns urge you to 'get high' - that Smith's ability to connect becomes inarguable.

The visuals never achieve the immersion they're after. In fact, the screen frame winds up circumscribing the experience, rendering the audience voyeurs.

A fine showcase for the musical prowess and showmanship of the Chemical Brothers, yet lacks the heat, sweat and heart-pounding, universal intensity of the live festival experience.

A concert movie with a difference, director Adam Smith captures The Chemical Brothers' live show in all its psychedelic splendor. Blistering, cinematic ecstasy.

If you're a fan of the Chemical Brothers, this will be be an incomparable treat. If you're not, seeing this will make you believe.

'Don't Think' is probably the best encapsulation ever recorded of the clubbing generation's live experience. That feeling of the senses being overwhelmed and reality becoming unhinged is at the heart of this movie.

Audience Reviews for Chemical Brothers: Don't Think

An absolutely epic performance from the legendary Chemicals! The only thing I did not like was not having as good a TV and sound system I would have liked to do this real justice - stunning!
