In cinemas for one night only
On February 1, the Chemical Brothers released their film Don’t Think created with their long time collaborator Adam Smith, in select movie theatres for one night only.
20 cameras have attempted to capture the electricity and psychedelic trip of a Chemical Brothers live gig from a fans perspective capturing the ambitious graphics and of course, the music in ultra clear Dolby Digital Surround Sound 7:1.
You blink awake and find yourself halfway up the side of a Japanese mountain. It’s night time, right at the sticky middle point of summer. You’re in an opening in a darkened wood surrounded by, say, 50,000 other revelers, each of them frenzied; delirious from an all-encompassing psychedelia that seems to be emanating from a stage somewhere in the near distance.
Above you, lights swoop and strafe across armies of marching toy robots and galloping deconstructed horses; paint balls explode in front of borderline psychotic clowns. You’re in the thick of it, consumed by the spectacle, absorbed into the crowd, surrendering to the noise and the visuals. Stunned by the jaw-dropping intensity of what you’re witnessing, just one thought flashes through your febrile mind: DON’T THINK. LET IT FLOW.
The DVD/Blue-Ray has been released on March 27, 2012.
