“...a vivid time capsule of New York rock culture at the turn of the millennium” Variety
|Told entirely through rare archival, home video, and DIY concert footage, this time capsule transports you directly to the meteoric rise of the Strokes, Interpol, the Yeah Yeah Yeah, LCD Soundsystem and more. New York at the turn of the millennium is captured in the most immediate, immersive fashion/ You can smell the sweat in the Mercury Lounge, watch on as Karen O rehearses in cramped apartments, feel the fabric of the city as it tries to mend in the wake of 9-11. The raw, downtown cool of the music is of course the pounding pulse of the film, but directors Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace also able to strike a poignant, elegiac tone.
“A euphoric and romanticised ode to the rock ‘n’ roll renaissance of early 2000s New York.” (RogerEbert.com)
“The music sounds just as thrilling as ever.” (Vogue)
