The Heart Is a Drum Machine Reviews
Imagine, if you will, over an hour of scientists and people in the music industry (and oddly, film actors) talking about what their opinion of music is.
Instead of being enlightening, it ends up sounding just... pretentious most of the time, if not downright pointless. I mean who cares that Julliette Lewis made out to Depeche Mode as a teenager?
Then again, Tim & Eric are in it. Their segment made me laugh, for sure.
It is short, and easily digestible (though I could have watched it for another hour and a half easily). The camera and editing is very simple. Direct, straight forward, and to the point. It isn't a glossy documentary, with fancy narration or a real point - it's just a bunch of artists vibing about music - something I love.
I will definitely buy this when I can. I recommend this to every one who truly loves and gets music as something more on a CD (or iPod these days). If you're not part of the spiritual plane, still check it out . Borrow it, check out the trailer - just get exposed to it somehow. All in all - fantastically wonderful and beautiful movie.
