Riverdance: The New Show #

Released 1/1/1996

Description: Riverdance Present is a cultural phenomenon that defies criticism for the enthusiastic and leaves everyone else scratching their heads. The wonderfully talented cast, headed by the Riverdance Irish Dance Company, bewitchingly spins (and stomps) its Celtic folk choreography featuring numerous breathless solos by Michael Flatley (since departed) and Jean Butler. The mellifluous Riverdance Orchestra boasts Davy Spillane, who coaxes plaintive lamentations out of a peculiar instrument that resembles a bagpipe in a metal leg brace. For Enya fans, there is the sound-alike choral group Anuna, who casts a similarly Fresh Age-style vocal spell. Also thrown into the mix are such disparate folk traditions as American gospel and Spanish flamenco. Though it's only 70 mins long, Riverdance is repetitive by half. But judging from the ecstatic audience ovations and the continued foot-stomping during and after the curtain calls, too much is still not enough.

Kurt & Courtney Reviews:

Is it objective? No. Is it informative? Yes. Is is accurate? Only as accurate as those talked to. Is it an interesting film? Without a doubt. This could have been named "Trying To Create 'Kurt & Courtney", because he never succeeds in making a decent look at their relationship but rather an intriguing look at his struggle to receive the entire thing off the ground. He ran into a lot of problem via Courtney Love and of course threw in his feelings toward her quite obviously in the film. Fanatics of Kurt may respect it, fanatics of Courtney are likely to despise it. I admit I am more a fanatic of Kurt than I should ever be of Courtney, he just seems a hell of a lot more true to me and she has afraid me, long before this movie made, with all the photo make-overs and lame self-promoting publicity stunts. So I had no trouble watching her receive ripped into in this documentary. But a warning to hardcore HOLE fans, you may receive extremely frustrated!Like it or hate it, it won't bore you!


About halfway through this "documentary" I suddenly realized that the movie may, in fact, have been a "mockumentary". Consider the following:* The director/interviewer kept telling to the audience "I wanted to enjoy such-and-such a song by Kurt/Nirvana, but the record label wouldn't give me permission, so here is other song by some band you've never heard of" * The finished ineptitude of the celebrity stalkers, whose digital camera runs out of battery power just as they receive close to the studio that Courtney Love is recording in... and soon are so nervous at an official function (where they are pretending to be the media) that they now fail to ask Courtney Love the needed questions.* The appearance of El Duce and his band "The Mentors" singing songs about sex slaves while dressed in leather executioner's gear - and then discovering that HE'S the guy who claims Courtney Love asked him to knock off Kurt.* In-depth Interviews with drug addicts and another "low-life" who claim to have met Kurt.* Courtney Love's father interpreting certain Nirvana lyrics as being a reference to LSD (a questionable complaint coming from someone who used to work as a roadie for the Grateful Dead).* The interviewer/director getting up at an official ACLU function and speaking directly AFTER Courtney Love's speech. (didn't anyone now notice?) As all these things came together, I honestly felt that the documentary was SO terrible that it should not be anything else but deliberate. Armed with the theory that this was now a mockumentary I was surprised to learn from a cursory internet find that the movie is now a true attempt at a documentary.Given the finished disaster that this documentary is, the only movie that it should therefore be compared to is Ed Wood's "Plan Nine From Outer Space". The aimlessness and ineptitude of the documentary is so pronounced that it now becomes quite entertaining after a while. As later as El Duce and The Mentors came into the equation I was almost howling on the floor laughing. The conspiracies surrounding Cobain's death could have been treated seriously - but they are examined in such a method as to almost be an insult to those who made the conspiracies up, allow alone the memory of Cobain.Neither Dave Grohl nor Krist Novoselic (the another two members of Nirvana) are interviewed or even seen throughout the film. Another major figures, such as Kurt's instant family, the band's manager and another record company execs are also missing from the film. Instead we are treated to a cavalcade of background figures (most of whom are drug addicts) who claim to have met and influenced Cobain method before he was a star and who all, for some reason, think that it is possible that Kurt had been murdered.Actual necessary leads - such as evidence that Kurt's credit card was used a several days after his death - are mentioned but never followed up and are eventually forgotten in favour of tracking down the mysterious (and ultimately hilarious) El Duce and spending time with clueless celebrity stalkers who spend more time on camera talking about what they do rather than now doing anything.In summary, the documentary itself is far more entertaining than the topics it purports to be investigating - but entertaining only because of its chaotic and misguided interviewer who interviews all the wrong folks and investigates all the wrong theories. It is about as compelling as driving past a flaming vehicle wreck that had run over and killed a circus clown.


I heard somewhere that Courtney Love tried like the dickens to receive this tiny documentary banned. If there is no truth to it, why would she care so much? Makes you think...Nick Bloomfield interviews folks a courtroom wouldn't consider reliable witnesses- El Duce, for one- a singer who was one bizarre addict himself. He claims Love offered him $50,000 to slay Cobain. Looking at this guy, you automatically rely on his testimony like your local weather report. Still, it is very interesting that weeks after this interview, El Duce was found dead on the railroad tracks by his home. An investigor who was at Cobain's "suicide" stage claims Cobain had method too much heroin in his system to be coherent enough to pull a trigger on himself with any accuracy. Cobain's Aunt claims the entire conspiracy theory is a load of bunk, and she feels Kurt had suicidal tendencies as well as addictions. Yet most of the folks interviewed accept that Courtney was a vindictive slag, jealous of Cobain's success and tried to hitch her wagon to Nirvana's rising star (memories of Courtney and Kurt on the cover of the actually defunked "Sassy" magazine, with Courtney trying to portray herself has the Nancy Spungen of the '90's comes to mind). I've never been a large Love or "Hole" fan, mainly because I don't think Love is that talented a musician or singer. I feel she has what they call "delusions of grandure", which is why this documentary, for as shaky as the evidence presented is, makes me wonder if it isn't the naked truth.
