Critic Reviews for The Reflektor Tapes
This isn't a standard rockumentary - this is willful inscrutability, audacious pretension and artful interference.
A muddled, directionless splatter of concert footage, studio ciné-verité, music-video abstraction and Haitian/Jamaican travelogue exotica that aspires to mythmaking but instead strangles itself on its own self-indulgence.
Lacks immediacy and actually seems designed for viewers who will discover and romanticize Arcade Fire 20 years from now.
Kahlil Joseph's concert film profile of Arcade Fire is a disorganized mishmash.
Devotees of the group will embrace it on video and perhaps in special-event-style theatrical bookings, but those with a casual interest will tire of it quickly.
Your enjoyment may vary, of course, depending on how seriously you take Arcade Fire's music: If you take it as seriously as the band does, this art project cum electronic press kit might resonate. For everybody else, it'll likely feel unfinished.
