i was really excited to have finally seen this dvd. i had heard about the film for a while, and it was definately worth the wait. "songs for cassavetes" is a good film to start with if you have any real interest in indie music, or even those (like myself) who have loved this music for a while. the film is shot in beautiful black and white and i liked the sound of the live performances. it gives the sound of the bands as they are live, full, loud, and raw. the real treat for me was seeing the henry's dress segment (who should have been more popular in my opinion) and the interviews with molly neuman of the always rockin, bratmobile. being a musician myself, it was inspiring to see these bands and know that they were doing what they wanted and how they wanted to do it.

i wanted to like this documentary very badly. i was completely excited when i received it. this had Unwound, Sleater-Kinney, The Make-Up and many others. some parts are genuinely interesting. but unfortunately nothing was given that i could really enjoy. the sound makes some (not all) of the live footage fairly unlistenable and the footage so dark i can barely see the people in some parts. mostly i wanted to see Unwound, what a horrible shock to find that halfway through their performance commentary starts playing! i was angered and felt cheated. the interviews were safe and boring, offered nothing new and some of the people were unbearable to hear talk. it was such a great idea and i wanted to love it from the beginning. maybe my expectations were too high?

this is a documentary about the underground scene.done in murky black & white to show it's undergroundness,this is a good documentary showcasing rock bands who have done it on their own without corporations and selling out.for people wanting to start their own bands this should be somewhat of an inspiration in showing you that there is hope still in being heard,without having to resort to corporations.that is if you aren't in it for the materialism of the world.so i guess this isn't for everybody seeing as there are so many poseurs out there.instead,if you are an individual and not just another sheep in the herd,than i do suggest seeing this.it turned me onto bands i had not heard of such as dub narcotic sound system and the hi-fives amongst others.i also loved seeing footage of the band sleater-kinney who are one of the newer bands worth listening to.so check this out if you're not a hip-hopper or a devotee of american idol garbage.with any hope documentaries like this will inspire more and more people in realizing that creative/experimental and different kinds of music do need to be heard and are much more important than the mindless corporate sludge that is being programmed and forced down our youths throats in fear of peer-pressure.
