Movie Info

Kurt Cobain said he stole their riffs; Bono was a major fan. Indie rock band the Pixies have been hugely influential ever since their unique sound made them college radio station favorites in the late 1980s. In 1993, however, creative disputes led the group to break up. This documentary follows the Pixies as they get together for their wildly successful 2004 reunion tour. Although thousands of fans cheer their return, the members find themselves struggling backstage as old issues resurface.

  • Filmmakers Steven Cantor and Matthew Galkin catch distressing and poignant moments on the tour that, if written into a fiction film, would seem too scripted to be true.

  • The 85-minute documentary takes a torpid, fly-on-the-wall approach, providing little context, few insights, and not enough music.

  • Watching the movie is not as much fun as listening to the old records.

  • For fans of the seminal alt-rock quartet, the Pixies' reunion was momentous, but in the solid behind-the-scenes documentary loudQuietloud, the band comes across as considerably more muted in its enthusiasm.

  • Boring people who made extraordinary music, the Pixies are inexplicable. In attempting to demystify them, this backstage pass to their 2004 reunion tour achieves the opposite.

  • This is a nice Cinderella story, but here's the problem: It doesn't exactly crackle with drama.

Audience Reviews for LoudQUIETloud: A Film About the Pixies

  • Apr 17, 2008
    A documentary about the legendary alternative rock band?s 2004 reunion tour. There are some really good musical performances here, but the real focus is on what?s going on backstage as the band tries to get their act together and get through this tour. Reunion situations don?t always get covered, which makes this fairly unique. I did get the feeling that some of the drama was manufactured in the editing room, but this is still pretty interesting. The production is not the best, but it?s never bad, although it makes sence that this went straight to video. It?s no Metallica: Some Kind of Monster, and there?s not too much to appeal to non-fans, but it is still an interesting look at the band circa 2004.
