JUSTICE - "A CROSS THE UNIVERSE"
I watched this last night and wow oh wow! It is a mind blowing documentary that follows French electro duo Gaspard and Xavier on their Myspace sponsored North American tour. I dont actually know where to begin but, to be honest it was just a manic rollercoaster ride fuelled by alcohol, groupies, fights, gun toting band managers and pillow fights, all pulsating to the best live music soundtrack since Daft Punk's "Alive 2007". The film is frenetically edited to give it the same intensity as Justice’s live sets. As the tour progresses things become more surreal and more debauched until Gaspard gets married to an amorous groupie in a tequila-drenched Las Vegas wedding and Xavier bottles a drunken assailant in a car park, before being arrested. It is a compelling watch and made me fall in love with Justice even more. I reckon these guys are our generation's AC/DC or Ramones.
