Movie Info

THE PAST IS A GROTESQUE ANIMAL is a personal, accessible portrait of an artist - of Montreal frontman Kevin Barnes - whose pursuit to make transcendent music at all costs drives him to value art over human relationships. As he struggles with all of those around him, family and bandmates alike, he's forced to reconsider the future of the band, begging the question - is this really worth it? (C) Oscilloscope

How exhilarating, and exhausting, it must be to wake up every day and be Kevin Barnes.

While Kevin Barnes, and the band, are different in some ways from other musicians and bands, they are also similar in a lot of ways. This is a slightly above average musical documentary, not very different than many others in this genre.

Under the Radar

Laced with plenty of performance footage, "The Past" peels back the curtain on one of the strangest--or some might say most pretentious--music collectives currently going.
