Combining rowdy concert footage and revealing offstage interactions of the band members, "Mad Tiger" is a well-executed portrait of a band coming apart at the seams.
The movie is obviously heartfelt, but the directors, Jonathan Yi and Michael Haertlein, never turn this motley crew into compelling characters.
This aptly colorful documentary doesn't provide all that much insight into the act's history, and the human conflicts aren't fully illuminated, either. But it's fun entering these performers' universe even with a less than all-access pass.
In this uncritical look at the group and its music, directors Jonathan Yi and Michael Haertlein put the focus on the standard reality-TV repertoire like "Making the Band."
Yellow and Red in particular don't hesitate to show that there's real pain behind their personas. Some costumes are for fun, but others are uniforms projecting a level of self-confidence that otherwise wouldn't exist.
An evocative portrait of strained friendships and creative turmoil.
Is he a madman, a genius, or something else altogether? By the end, it becomes clear why the directors titled their film Mad Tiger.
Mad Tiger is an incomplete character portrait that coasts on the idea that the band's crazy antics are compelling enough to fill out a feature runtime.
Let's face it, the music is awful, but the inter-personal drama and backstage dynamics ensure Mad Tiger is a tense, at times sad peek inside the ego and ambition that motivates the artist.
The whole thing boils down to Hioki's ego, and watching a 45-year-old musician trying to keep his band together becomes a bit taxing.
Mad Tiger achieves a tricky balance: It captures how Peelander-Z can generate authentic fun at their shows while suffering turmoil from the personalities within.
