On April 2nd 2011, LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of its career.
The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza did just
that, moving the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and grief,
with NEW YORK magazine calling the event "a marvel of pure craft"
and TIME magazine lamenting "we may never dance again." SHUT UP AND
PLAY THE HITS is both a narrative film documenting this once in a
life time performance and an intimate portrait of James Murphy as
he navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the
personal and professional ramifications of his decision.
The film has been described by critics as 'amazing..' (Rolling Stone), 'visually, arresting and monumental and
profound' (SPIN), 'LCD
Soundsystem's Last Waltz' (Indiewire), 'Wonderful... a profoundly spiritual and
emotional experience' (A.V Club), 'The Last Waltz for the kids who were in
high-school on 9/11' (Variety), 'one of the most interesting and enjoyable
musical documentary experiences in a long, long time'
(Twitch Film) and 'the last great
LCD Soundsystem song, encapsulating the climax of an era'
(URB.com). This is the second
film from directors Dylan Southern and
Will Lovelace, the same duo behind Pulse' 2010 feature, No
Distance Left To Run.
The film was part of the official selection for Sundance 2012,
SXSW 2012 and HotDocs and was also chosen for the inaugural
Sundance London. SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS will see a theatrical
release later this year. .
