Description From the production team behind the Oscar® winning Searching for Sugar Man comes We Are X, a transcendent rock and roll story about X Japan, the world's biggest and most successful band you've never heard of...yet. Under the enigmatic direction of drummer, pianist, composer, and producer Yoshiki, X Japan has sold over 30 million singles and albums combined--captivating such a wide range of admirers as Sir George Martin, KISS, Stan Lee, and even the Japanese Emperor--and pioneered a spectacle-driven style of visual rock, creating a one-of-a-kind cultural phenomenon. Chronicling the band's exhilarating, tumultuous and unimaginable history over the past three decades--persevering through personal, physical and spiritual heartache--the film culminates with preparations for their breathtaking reunion concert at New York's legendary Madison Square Garden. Directed by acclaimed documentarian Stephen Kijak (Stones in Exile, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man), We Are X is an astonishingly intimate portrait of a deeply haunted-but truly unstoppable-virtuoso and the music that has enthralled legions of the world's most devoted fans.

We Are X is a documentary that chronicles the turbulent years of hip hop in Los Angeles. While other hip hop documentaries attempt to depict the impact of the genre on the culture, We Are X focuses on the rise of the genre and the downfall of it's star, Ice-T. The film follows the rise and fall of Ice-T, portraying his rise to stardom and eventual fall from fame and his eventual death in 2005. This film gives a great insight into the impact that hip hop had on the world of music and also provides a perspective into the events that led to Ice-T's death. We Are X is a great documentary for anyone interested in hip hop. There are so many stories told in this film, from the rise of Ice-T, to the fall of Ice-T, to the rise of rappers like J-Lo and Beyonce Knowles. We Are X has many features that are worth mentioning. The first is the use of video footage of the show that Ice-T did in the early 80's, the show that made him famous. The second feature is the use of old interviews from Ice-T that take place in the 90's. While this film has many great things to offer, it is mostly focused on Ice-T and the rise and fall of the hip hop scene in the 1980's. It does this well, but it is not perfect. The documentary is missing many other things, which mostly comes down to the lack of interviews with other rappers, and the lack of musical numbers. While Ice-T does have music videos in this documentary, they are few and far between. They do have the occasional song that Ice-T did for his own song, but these songs are almost always chosen for other reasons. Ice-T's music videos are more like fan videos, which does not sound good for a documentary. We Are X is a good documentary, but it is not perfect.

It's hard to imagine that a band like this could exist in the UK. I had the pleasure of meeting the members of NOFX at a punk show in a little village outside of Manchester and had the opportunity to interview them on their latest album 'Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours'. I have always been a fan of NOFX but their current live shows are far from the band's finest work. They are more like a comedy act than a rock band and that is where their greatest strengths lie. I had the opportunity to see them perform a song from their latest album, which was 'Lethal Weapon' and it was an absolutely brilliant show. NOFX play a very low key set and it was a pleasure to watch the band perform at the most demanding of venues. As a musician, it's amazing to watch them perform the songs they are so comfortable with. I would like to see them perform a few more songs live in order to take their level of performance to the next level. You'll hear 'Heavy Metal' from the upcoming 'Longview' album and you'll also hear some very funny commentary from some of the most respected punk rock and punk rock music critics around the world. This documentary really shows the experience of working with NOFX and gives you a good insight into what the band were like before they made the transition into the mainstream. I really hope that this documentary will inspire some new bands to get together and form a new band of their own. There is so much talent that exists in the UK and this documentary should help spread the word. NoFX are one of the most original and progressive bands that I have ever come across. I look forward to seeing what they come up with next!

In 2006, the hard-rock band X2 were hailed as one of the most exciting new bands in the world. They made their debut at a small club in a tiny country town called Brackley and immediately rose to fame. The band's first album, 'Dead Kennedys' was released that same year, selling out a live venue in the process. They quickly became a phenomenon, winning a whole host of awards and becoming the most popular band in the world. With 'X2', they made a huge leap forward and showed their fans that they weren't just a one-hit wonder. Despite the fact that they had to step out of their comfort zone in order to perform live, their popularity was still strong. With their next album, 'We Are X', they expanded their horizons and created their most daring and creative album. The group went on to win numerous awards and chart to success. The album's tracks were bold and powerful, taking place within a dark world where it's all about finding your identity. The band took a few years between albums, but it was at this point that they started to really become popular again. Their albums would go on to win several awards and cement their status as one of the most influential bands of the last twenty years. The band were huge in the early 1990s, and were soon signed to a major record label and signed to a major studio. After making a few albums under their own name, they were ready to take their talents to the big screen, and that is exactly what happened. The film tells the story of the formation of the X-tension and the fallout of the group's rise to fame. The movie follows the band through their journey to success and shows how their success came about. They are told their story and they are seen from all angles. From the backstage gossip, to the interviews with the band, the story of the band is told. The movie was filmed entirely in the UK and uses a lot of footage from the band's concerts. The musicians are portrayed as human beings, not just rock stars, and that was something that was important to me. I feel that this film did a great job of portraying the band in a very real way, which is something that is rarely seen in music films. I don't want to give away the ending too much, but it is definitely one of the most powerful things that I have ever seen in a film. I can't wait to see this film again and will be watching it again the day after I watch it. I have to give the movie an 'A' rating, but that doesn't mean that it is perfect. There are a few points that I would have liked to have seen explained better. The band is still the same band, they still play all their original songs, they still have the same managers, and they still have the same producers. In terms of the music, I have to say that the band have played great live, but I felt that the live performances of 'Out of Time' and 'Solo' were a little rushed. I also think that the movie did a good job of showing the band as more than just a rock band, but a band that were struggling to find their identity. It does a good job of showing the emotional turmoil that the band were going through at the time, and shows how their fans were not only supporting the band, but were giving them advice and cheering them on. As a film, the movie is very well made, and has some great music to compliment the stories. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone that wants to see an amazing film about the rise and fall of the X-tension. I really think that this is one of the best rock films that I have seen in a while. My Grade: A- (Out Of 10)

This documentary is a must see for anyone who is a student of the music business, or even just a lover of the music business. The soundtrack is a masterpiece. Each song represents a different aspect of life, each of the songs being used in different ways, but all are used to show the change of a person in a short amount of time. There are 3 main things that I really enjoyed about this documentary. 1) The way the different artists are brought to the audience. In some ways, this is a chore to watch. But that was really the point. It was fun to see different views of music industry, and different styles of music. 2) The chemistry between the performers. It is a strange thing when a musician is so sincere, and yet at the same time you can feel a connection to their music. There is a real feeling of trust between the audience and the performers. 3) The use of the band to create a mood of the film. Every song is a perfect piece of music, and the band is used to bring that out in the audience. The part about the bassist and the drummer are two examples. Overall, this is a great film to watch. I am a big fan of the bands, and am going to buy this on DVD when it is released. And if you are a fan of any of the bands mentioned in the film, I would suggest this movie to you. I highly recommend this film, it is a must see for everyone. It is not just about the music, it is about life. Go and see it, I promise you will not regret it. Thank you for reading my review, and I hope you enjoyed the movie.

From "The Wire" to "Sicario" and from "The Fall" to "The Hunger Games", this is the quintessential "film noir" to make. The film is set in Los Angeles. And it is from that city that the film was filmed. (This is not a film about L.A., but the city itself, the movie is set in L.A. - and only the city.) The film begins with the murder of a friend by a drug dealer, and the boy is taken to live with his aunt and uncle in the District of Columbia, which was under the rule of the corrupt Mayor Marion Barry (played by Kevin Costner). The boy is then brought up by the drug dealer, and he begins to use his wealth to gain power, not from violence or crime, but by using people's natural kindness to gain power. In the middle of the film, he is accused of murdering his friend, and he is placed in a prison, for whom he does not know his own name. The film shows the whole spectrum of this prison: good, bad, and indifferent. He is in the beginning a good prisoner, but he soon finds his place in the prison, and he begins to use the drug dealer to gain power. The movie ends with the great figure of Oscar Grant, who is shot in a crowd in a park, and the film ends with the voice-over of the police chief, that reminds us the tragedy of the situation, and tells us what is happening in the world. The movie is about the human spirit, and it is about the human spirit of the human race, and how the spirit can be used to conquer the very thing that separates us from the human race, the spirit of crime, and the human spirit can be used to conquer the world. This movie is a masterpiece.
