Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

Thirteen Smiths' recordings, half of them in a club with a live audience. These alternate with five rock videos, two directed by Derek Jarman (Panic and Ask), two by Tim Broad (Girlfriend in a Coma and Stop Me...), and one by Paula Grief and Richard Levine (How Soon Is Now?). It concludes with Jarman's short film, "The Queen Is Dead," with a three-song soundtrack. The rock videos, particularly Jarman's, are filled with multiple and superimposed images, changing tints, and little narrative coherence; they get their pace from the music's rhythm. Androgyny, dancing children, belching smokestacks, graffiti, angry young men, a waif in a cap: collages of modern alienation.

Audience Reviews for The Smiths: The Complete Picture

The Smiths. The greatest band of the 80s, possibly the greatest band of all time, and this proves it. Here we have 13 videos from them, consisting of the few promo videos they made and some of their best known live performances. We also have 3 videos directed by Derek Jarman (The Queen Is Dead, Panic and There Is A Light That Never Goes Out). Any Smiths fans , or music fan for that matter should watch this.
