My reaction
Synopsis: a Robyn Hitchcock concert film
How I saw it: on video (have on DVD), yesterday
Concept: Bad. It doesn’t make any sense to film this concert. It’s slow and quiet with no spectacle; there’s nothing gained by seeing it rather than just hearing it.
Story: n/a
Characters: n/a
Dialog: Good.
Pacing: Indifferent.
Cinematography: Terrible.
Special effects/design: Bad.
Acting: n/a
Music: Great.
Subjective Rating: 3/10 (Bad). Amateurish film of a great (but bad-for-filming) concert. Completely pointless.
Objective Rating: 1.7/4 (Eh).
