Editorial Reviews

Since exploding onto the scene The Strokes have given rock music the strangling it so badly needed. Not only have they won the hearts and minds of the music press and alternative crowd but they have also crossed over into the mainstream without sacrifici

this dvd is the most miserable, pathetic, awful, horrendous, diguisting, wretched, atrocious, cheap, god-awful, fallacious, dreadful, generally BAD dvd you will ever see in your life... for a little bit i actually forgot it was about the strokes, then i think i MIGHT have seen a picture of them... doubt it though.... and that reminded me. The point is, this has no music by the strokes, no interviews with them, nothing.... only a picture or two. Well, just don't buy it, save your money and by their cd... it's 18,000 times better.
i'm a big strokes fan and this was such a let down, don't let yourself get bummed out by this mistake as well

Holy cow, this DVD is awful! First off, there is absolutely NO music by the Strokes on this DVD. The band was not involved in any way regarding the production of this "documentary". Instead, you get stock photos of the band and music played by half-rate house musicians. Furthermore, there are no interviews with the Strokes. The Strokes producer is interviewed, which is fairly enlightening. The rest of the interviewees seemed to be a bunch of spares with little or nothing to say. I suppose the producers of this drivel were trying to add a touch of class by using a narrator with a British accent. Instead, it comes off trite and contrived.
I am a huge Strokes fan, and I would definately like to see a REAL documentary about them - one including actual interviews with the Strokes, and some of their music. Instead, this DVD just seems like a rush job to cash in on the band's recent success. No wonder this DVD is unauthorized - who would authorize something this bad? Save your money and wait for something better!

It's just one of those things you end up watching at 3 in the morning. But skip this one. You should be sleeping.

I am a die-hard Strokes fan so when New York Stories came out, I had to have it. Much to my disappointment, it turned out to contain no music by The Strokes, or interviews with any members of the band.

If you still feel like you need to see this DVD, don't pay more than $5 for it. You have been officially warned.

I bought this DVD because I really adore the Strokes. Good music, good people, good style...not so good documentary. Whoever made this video should not make anymore at all! The strokes were not even in this besides very few pictures & 10 second clips of them & the "exclusive interviews" were not that exclusive. No sound from any of the strokes & no interviews with them...I can go on. I mean c'mon...a documentary of the Strokes should at least have the Strokes in it, right?

First of all, there would of been more of The Strokes and their music if it were approved by their awful major label RCA Records. Anyone on here who knows anything about major labels would know that once the band is on a label everything has to go through them, which costs a lot of money. Because of this a small indie documentary would not have been able to be made. I give the company credit for trying to tell the real story the best they could without RCA'a approval. Second of all, anyone who knows the real story how The Strokes were started would know there are other people in the film that have credibility besides the producer......how about the person that introduced then to their producer, manager and booked, promoted and created a massive buzz on them before they got big....Kerri of KerriBlack Promotions ([...]) It takes a lot of work from many before a major label notices a small local indie band and Kerri worked hard on getting this band noticed. THIS documentary was just trying to tell the real story before any of you ever heard of them. Give the film some credit!
