And again, we’re gonna throw out some of our movie selections in this second volume of Pop Screen. Starting with music movies in general, we’re agreed to narrow it down into a “Music Biopic” movie recommendation. Gently speaking, this list might be a little tense but it surely unveils the salvation and voyage entailed in each of the iconic figures within.
Music is a mis(t)ery, they old folk say. A long list of music films have been drafted and the process to sort it down might be a little tricky. Though, the main theme is pretty much narrowed down the selections.
The tension is inevitable but the whole narrative package will spark a little glimpse of this musician’s dark sides.
Love & Mercy
This film demonstrates an unconventional side of Brian Wilson, the erratic frontman and songwriter of The Beach Boys. Obscurely, seeing his madness drive his genius vein into the Beach Boys enigma is a miraculous phase during his complete psychotic breaks.
Strangled over the joy of misery, this movie is all about the glimpse of Ian Curtis troubled life. A dazzled-virtuous soul, Ian Curtis was living a twisted-line in between his epilepsy relapse, tangled marriage and the uprising carrier. To feel the strain all over him, the weight of fame and glory pushes him away into the land of the unknown.
Straight Outta Compton
“Tell em’ where you from, Straight Outta Compton”. Taking us back to where it all began, the “N.W.A” gang is spinning and tapping here there for a better acknowledgement of their faith, rapping. Slow jamming makes them a penny but no sack of gold.
Scratching, rhyming and recording, those are all Dre, Eazy-E and Ice Cube do for what they believe is true. Getting into the story line, this film is pretty mush easy to follow as its deliver each of the narrative all consecutive timeline.
Sid and Nancy
For all we know, he only plays 3 base chords with no rhythms, yet his violence ensemble up on the stage hollowing over the darkish pub. This film is an open book about the love-hate situation between Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen.
This story about the “Drag Queen” and “Vicious King” is like rereading the Yoko-Lennon romance, though it involves a lot more, drugs, outbursts and English lads.
I’m Not There
For God-sake, it’s Cate Blanchett smoking like Dylan. It’s pretty hard to articulate every aspect of Dylan’s oddballs with only one entity existing. Based on Dylan’s historical inquiry, Haynes spares six of Dylan’s personality which depicts every inch of his alteration.
If you wanna track down the whole length of Dylan’s journey, this film is the top recommendation for you to watch. Please don’t confuse yourself with 6 different picture of Bob Dylan.
