6 May 2009 | alo_wishs
A Memphantastic glimpse into hipster scene musical beds.
Directed at the core audience of Midtown Memphis scenesters, this collection of 15 shorts delves into the lives of real musicians and their semi-real lives. The dramatic themes play out to wider appeal, as most anybody can relate to the happy-go-lucky ideology of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll. The best part about this "film biopic" is the variety of interspersed musical interludes. For each 7-minute episode, there may be about 3 minutes devoted solely to musical performance. None of these sections seem forced or disjointed, but they all work well into the story, and even help to develop the characters. Being a native Memphian and friends with several of the cast, I have an inherent bias, of course. But, I feel if this movie were made in Austin,TX, or Athens,GA, and I didn't know anybody, I could still relate to the struggles of trying to find love and self-identity in the context of a burgeoning local music scene.
