"Shut Up" is graceful in its depiction of the performance, neither uncomfortably intimate nor shy.

Murphy is one hell of a frontman, and LCD Soundsystem is a deliriously exciting concert act.

If you've never heard of LCD Soundsystem or cared much for the group's work, "Shut Up and Play the Hits" still manages to explore the prospects of fame and contemporary rock music's lasting relevance.

LCD Soundsystem's die-hard fanbase will appreciate this concert documentary, but few others are likely to think it demands big-screen viewing.

Much like the band's self-conscious synth-pop itself, Shut Up is initially satiric but ultimately disarming in its emotional resonance.
