James’s review published on Letterboxd:
Previously I saw an early edit at a film festival and rated it 2.5/5. It really dragged and had some inaccuracies such as suggesting UNKLE was DJ Shadow’s project, whereas it existed prior to him joining.
Rewatching it now it’s a lot tighter and the third act isn’t as depressing. There’s still some weird stuff where the timeline doesn’t make sense (DJ Shadow is introduced after mentioning a bunch of events from 1995, while really he had been hanging with James Lavelle since 1993 at least), but I get they edited things to tell a story.
Overall very interesting, and Josh Homme steals the show.
