We Are X

We Are X ★★★★★

A document on one of my favorite bands...that most Americans have never heard of. Told from the band drummer/pianist/leader's pov. I've actually had a chance to listen to yoshiki speak in Baltimore years ago and I found this documentary answered so much more to the life and spirit of this band. Inside the music, the live performances and the men themselves. I found myself personally reflecting on X japan's influence on my life, I made friends due to a mutual love of this band. I think the talk of suicide hit close to home especially in relation to the deaths of two band members. I think there's great levels to this doc, for someone new to the band and for long time fans.
