The Unheard Music is a dazzling new high in eccentric cinema, an eye-popping, ear-shattering hybrid of love performance, home movies, interviews, documentary footage, vintage commercials and old movies that creates a remarkable portrait of the rock and roll band X.
Something more than a documentary, but far from a straight-forward “story” of the band, The Unheard Music can be traced back in its form to Kenneth Anger’s Scorpio Rising and Dusan Makavejev’s W.R.-Mysteries of the Organism. Still, its frantic energy is a brand all its own, The film feels like a spontaneous outgrowth, a perfect match of mind and music. Its raw, rapid-fire pace is not an effect for its own sake. With considerable intelligence and wit, the filmmakers have situated the band and its music within a precise cultural field, cross-referencing songs with everything from Nicaragua, to the recording industry, to the unveiling of the Ford Edsel.
Ample performances will satisfy die-hard devotees of the band, and cineastes around the world will be impressed by this exhilarating new film.
