| Informative but ineffective
In short Wax Trax as a record label had a big influence on me. I was very excited for this doc.

The focus of the doc is very much on the founders and very little on the actual bands and music, except how they related to the founders. Though interesting, it really wasn't what I showed up for.

I found it repeating the same points over and over. Yes, the founders were gay and Wax Trax store was a meeting place for the subculture. Spend less time repeating this and showcase the awesome music that came out of that subculture.

I did enjoy how they timelined everything. I learned a lot about the history of bands I thought I knew. However they also missed reporting on some pretty significant events in the scene. They also seemed to really minimize the role of Jourgenson on the label and the scene I thought.

Overall it was a well informed documentary about 2 gay record store owners who started a label, but seemed to miss the mark on the music and the impact, with me anyway.
