Editorial Reviews

We Fun: Atlanta GA Inside/Out is the 2009 documentary about the indie rock scene that recently exploded out of Atlanta, GA. From the producers of the cult classic Athens GA Inside/Out, We Fun features the Black Lips, Deerhunter, King Khan & the Shrines and more performing tracks from their groundbreaking albums. Featured on Pitchfork Media's One Week Only in 2009, We Fun is an important piece of music history, both as a companion to the original Athens documentary as well as a stand alone film about the new music business on the new musical horizon.

Being someone from Atlanta who actually knows/knew several of the people in this film, I enjoyed seeing this movie for that reason alone. It is a document of a music scene at a particular point in time that basically revolves around a few bands that have become indie rock darlings.

As far as the music goes in this movie, Deerhunter continue to be a great band, that layer a lot of influences together in a psychedelic wash that make words irrelevant. It was great seeing the Subsonics included, an old school Atlanta band who I played some gigs with back in the day. The film touchs on Mastodon (though they couldn't afford to license their music), arguably the most successful rock band to come out of the ATL since the Black Crowes. The film showcases the Black Lips pretty well, with their neo-punk attitude that pretty much outshines their music, they are the bratty kids that changed the Atlanta scene for good or bad, devolving a pretty diverse musical landscape into a distortion laid garage punk mess that it is today.

As a documentary, I think it could have been better. The Black Lips attitude seems to be that of the film makers as well. Every interview that is conducted is done while "partying" with the bands and everyone, for the most part, is drunk or high and poorly elaborates on what they think the "Atlanta scene" is or what it means to them or the rest of the world. I don't know what questions the interviewers may have been asking but very few of them actually had to do with music. I know that Bradford Cox from Deerhunter has a variety of influences and an interesting perspective on "the scene" but all they ever asked him about was the Black Lips.

As another reviewer implied, despite being billed as a documentary of the Atlanta indie scene in general at the time of its creation, this film is largely centered around the band Black Lips, to the point where I think I would not recommend viewing or purchasing it unless you are a big Black Lips fan. As someone who is not a huge fan of theirs, and was hoping for a well-rounded, interesting documentary, I was left rather disappointed in several ways. While quite a few other bands and personalities from the Atlanta indie scene are interviewed, the conversation always inevitably drifted to "...So how do you feel about Black Lips?" to the point where it would have been comical if it wasn't so frustrating. Similarly, while there is concert footage as well as background music from several different Atlanta bands, the vast majority of both are Black Lips performances and songs.

At the risk of sounding judgmental and somewhat puritan, the film was also largely unpleasant for me because several of the people heavily featured came off, to be frank, as self-centered jerks who cared more about having a good time/getting trashed than creating music. Maybe it was just because the film focused, in my opinion, too much in the way of Atlanta apparently being a great city to have a wild party, but I really don't care about people I've mostly never heard of getting wasted. I do not know these people, so I don't want to speculate about whether or not they are "bad" people or not. But when the highlights of a band (in a film largely about themselves, no less) include dissing local legends Subsonics for "not getting out enough" and ruining a photo shoot by immaturely setting off a fire extinguisher and causing the building to be evacuated, well...

I am a huge music fan and I live in Atlanta, so I thought this would be right down my alley. Unfortunetly, this seemed to be a bunch of posers pretending to be musicians. If these guys concerned themselves with their guitars and drums as much as their tatts, their hair and their clothes, perhaps the music wouldn't have been so lame. That being said, having a music scene that's apparently one big kegger must be lots of fun.
