And why is Harmony Korine thrown into this documentary, just because he likes the music? I mean, I'm not really hating on people for liking the music or anything, but there is virtually nothing redeemable about these people in my eyes. Chronicles the history, ideology and aesthetic of Norwegian black metal - a musical subculture infamous as much for a series of murders and church arsons as it is for its unique musical and visual aesthetics. Vai ser ignorante assim la na pqp 67kc, pela foto ja da pra saber o nivel da pessoa, bob marley, ridiculo. O que as pessoas não percebem é que o metal não é todo assim. The majority of this film displays a massive lack of camera operating skill where it looked like the operator just walked around Norway filming any bird or bee in their path. With no narrator and very few inter-titles, the talking head pieces are largely left to drive the film forward.
Until the Light Takes Us se estrenó el 2008-10-31 y dura un total de 93 minutos. Inspired by such forbearers as Venom, Slayer, Celtic Frost and Bathory, the Norwegian black metal bands were musical aesthetes. Immortal's interview was another setting where they didn't use any lights but what was provided in the pub which was saving grace for the filmmakers. Maybe I'm biased because I've been a fan of this style of music for 9 years and I feel that this poorly made documentary disgraced the scene. The documentary doesn't glorify or slander the black metal scene, but brings out into light some views and opinions that sheds light upon a great many aspects of this darker side of metal.
Vikernes is interviewed at length from his jail cell in Trondheim, where he was serving a lengthy term for the murder of his Mayhem bandmate Euronymous and several church arsons though I believe he's since been released since this film was shot. The rest of the film was following Fenriz around. Part music scene and part cultural uprising, black metal rose to worldwide notoriety in the mid-nineties when a rash of suicides, murders, and church burnings accompanied the explosive artistic growth and output of a music scene that would forever redefine what heavy metal is and what it stands for to other musicians, artists and music fans world-wide. Himself - Mayhem as Jan Axel 'Hellhammer' Blomberg. Do not expect a musical walk through, nor an explanation on the aesthetics of the genre, what you'll get is an account of the ideologies of the musicians, their perception of a bankrupt society with a complete disclosure of their questionable morals.
Furthermore, the soundtrack was quite focused on black metal. Experience the northern frost, the northern moon. Fortunately most of the film isn't like this. The interviews are left uncommented, so everyone can think for themselves regarding the statements the interviewees make. Some, like Varg Vikernes, are extremely misguided and lost, but others are quite intelligent and reasonable.
I understand that he's sort of Norway's version of Charles Manson nowadays, i. Fenriz's interview in the white room was so blown out that I can't believe the filmmakers allowed these shots go to print. This is the movie that gets inside the minds and hearts of black metal's musicians. This film could have been great. The movie is also a bit scattered. Yes Christianity fucked up a lot in Norway, and certainly being pagan is a thing. All the people out here who were hoping to see yet another documentary focused on the music, and on 30 different similar bands: lets face it, the music itself is known by now, this documentary finally shows about the ways behind these Black Metal pioneers, an insight on how this group interacted, and how the hell did it happen.
The interview with Varg Vikerness was quite interesting, as well as Fenriz' his talk on his childhood. Respect the community, and do not consign their comments to the memory hole. And realize that it probably wouldn't have sounded the same without their actions. That kind of insight was really useful and I was hoping for more of that and maybe an explanation of why corpse paint became such a huge part of black metal or why Norwegians feel such a bigger connection to black metal than the Swedes or Danes, their fellow Scandinavians who paved the way for black metal in the early 80s. They definitely fought against our troops, but that was in defense or so I choose to believe of their own land against an invading occupying force. This is the movie that gets inside the minds and hearts of black metal's musicians.
Whilst the insights from Nagell and Vikernes are interesting, it does tend to make 'Until the Light Takes Us' feel a bit like an incomplete picture of the true goings-on of the time. The film also portrays some fly-on-the-wall moments with Nagell as he recounts the events of the early days of the black metal scene, and includes some archival footage, most notably of the infamous church burnings and the ensuing media frenzy. As someone who was quite entranced with the decidedly early Black Metal scene as an impressionable teenager way back in the early to mid 90's, a documentary like this is more a walk down memory lane than a revelation. Aaron aites and Audrey ewell have gone to great lengths to treat a history long the subject of hysteria and misrepresentation with the venerability and respect due a subject so weighty. I'm not looking for demonization, I'm looking for basic, fully realized non-fiction. There was no point and they had no closure at the end. And really, what is the link between Black Metal and violent performance art, of which we see a lot of.
Furthermore Fenriz complains about its supposed commercialization a dubious claim in the first place , but what got it there? Oh and Fenriz is the most boring character to center a movie around. The closes thing to live footage is a grainy video of Mayhem rehearsing. From 1992 until 1996, as many as 50 churches were burnt down throughout the country by band members and fans of the Norwegian black metal scene. He laments that once the hysteria began, tons of wanna-be's jumped on the bandwagon and started their own terror campaigns, and in his eyes, went totally against everything that Black Metal should've been. As ideologias associadas ao estilo são impossíveis de perceber e totalmente anti-humanas.
Only this by itself, for such a specialized subject matter, is almost a triumph. Director: Aaron Aites , Audrey Ewell Genres: Production Co: Artists Public Domain, The Group Entertainment Keywords: , , , , ,. It did contain black metal, but not enough to turn away your average moviegoer. A continuación un breve resumen de Until the Light Takes Us. I was highly anticipating this movie and it was very through provoking and enjoyable. I highly recommend this film to anyone who truly loves black metal music. Why would they burn down the churches you might ask? Those include but are not limited to: putting the movement into some social context, having a good sampling of the music, having some actual live footage, describing how it developed and what its influences were and describing where it ended up.
