We Are X

We Are X ★★★★★

One of the most interesting and engrossing documentaries I've ever seen. Probably the best music documentary ever. 

I went into the film having only barely heard of the legendary rock group X Japan and their leader/drummer/keyboardist Yoshiki. I came out a huge fan and spent the next 10 hours obsessively reading more, listening to music and watching concert footage. You might want to use caution if you have work the next day!

The content is great, but the editing and visual style is also amazing. I can imagine there's a ton of subtext for longtime fans and I look forward to rewatches as well as (hopefully) bonus features and director's commentary on the DVD. 

I cannot recommend this more strongly.
