Closure exists in two parts: The first is an amazing documentary on the crazy, dark, anarchic, infamous beast that was the Self Destruct tour Nine Inch Nails did in support of their brilliant, legendary album The Downward Spiral. They were joined by then unknown band Marilyn Manson and the Jim Rose Circus Sideshow, who's name pretty much speaks for itself. The live performance video's are grainy, with poor video and audio most of the time and a hectic, handheld vibe that actually complements the intensity of the music and performance. Nine Inch Nails is the greatest live band of all time, bar none, and this doc shows why.

The second part is Nine Inch Nails' complete video's up to 1997 and while not as enthralling as the Self Destruct documentary, it still shows a brilliant band at its most creative. The video's range from the extremely dark and gory (Happiness In Slavery, Pinion) to the near pornographic (Sin), to the just plain weird (Closer, Help Me I Am In Hell) to the horribly cheesy (the painful Down In It), to the ultra gothic arthouse (The Perfect Drug). All in all it's a great set of video's and a great example of the band up to that point.

While I personally feel And All That Could Have Been is the better of Nine Inch Nails' video outputs, this is a close second and a perfect time capsule of the first part of the career of one of history's greatest, most brilliant, most interesting bands.

Nobody rocks like NIN rocks. Awesome live footage and some funny backstage stuff too - who'd have thought they have a sense of humour?

So cool. I finally got to burn it and am so glad its part of my ever growing nin collection. Where the hell was I in 1997 anyway and why wasn't I there??!!

showcasing the band's 1994 "downward spiral" tour, which occured at the peak of the band's main exposure to the general public, this is not only a concert film showcasing great footage, but it also provides an excellent insight into trent reznor and the rest of the touring lineup. it also has every music video released through 1997. a perfect viewing for every fan.

A great compilation of live performances and back stage footage. The music videos are original and entertaining, sometimes dark and sinister, sometimes simple and to the point, always amazing.

This movie is great!
I was lucky enough to help shoot some of the film in this picture under Peter Christopherson. It was a lot of fun, and Trent turned out to be a great guy.

Available for download, both discs, dvd9, if you look in certain places, leaked by Trent, year before last I belive, along with the Broken movie. Would recommend this to even someone slightly interested in the band.
