Wow, I really like Luna, but...,
This review is from: Luna - Tell Me Do You Miss Me (DVD)
I've been a fan since 1995. I love the music, I saw them play live, I bought several albums at import prices b/c I was able to get them one week - two months in advance. That said, this movie is sub-par.
We do not learn anything beyond what happens on and is said on this tour. Aside from a few, like three, anecdotes about tours past. We do not learn where the band members are from or anything about their biographies that is noteworthy. We only learn surface details about their lives. The whole movie seems rushed and thrown together.
The two stars are awarded b/c there are some great live recordings on the disc, whole songs even. That is it. If you can get the thing on the cheap, do it. Otherwise, buy with extreme caution.
PS, I like, "Watch Me Jumpstart," "The Devil & Daniel Johnston," "Slow Century" and all the Talking Heads movies, documentary or otherwise. So I am not just dismissing this "rockumentary" w/out basis.

The movie is about their breakup tour, so that's what it's about! It assumes that you already know all about the band. I guess you missed the point. This is probably the best rock documentary I've ever watched, probably because it is so focused and subtle about the emotions of the band breaking up.
