FREAKSCENE: THE STORY OF DINOSAUR JR.
Wednesday, November 10
(2021, Germany, 82m, DCP) dir Philipp Reichenheim. Freakscene: The Story of Dinosaur Jr. is an homage to one of the most influential bands on the American East Coast, which inspired the rock scene – including Nirvana and many others – in the 1990s. Their style and unmistakable sound, later referred to as “Grunge”, laid the foundation for the entire “Slacker” culture of Generation X.
It is also the story of the eloquent and eccentric guitarist and bandleader J. Mascis, the bassist Lou Barlow, and drummer Murph, a band that insanely does not talk to each other. Communication takes place exclusively through music. Philipp Reichenheim nevertheless manages to make the closed and shy icons speak.
