Alan Vega: Just a Million Dreams2013

  • 2.9
This intimate portrait will reveal uncommon stories of groundbreaking visual artist and pioneer of minimalist electronic rock, Alan Vega, vocalist and composer for 1970s and 80s punk/post punk duo Suicide. Alan plays with the camera and enjoys the friendship of filmmaker Losier, while also loving, fighting and living with his family (Liz Lamere, his wife and collaborator, and their son Dante, young replica of Alan). Traces of joy, eccentricity, illumination but also deep fatigue and slow Suicide. The rock-n-roll Alan is still very alive, funny and rebellious.

SUCKS

The only thing that made me say "Wow" in this whole thing was that Alan Vega apparently loves Everybody Loves Raymond.

Useless fluff.

Has relevance since the Suicide songs chosen as background should be heard. Seems like an aborted project given the run time and the lack of coherent narrative. Part cautionary tale about the NYC scenester life, and yet also the resilience of family life. Overall, probably a truer documentary given it's raw unvarnished semi portrait.

The mighty Alan Vega is....an old man. He's a charming, frail, sweet, cranky one though. And this short documentary shows all sides of this legend.

sorry, not interested

Self-indulgent and obscurantist.

c'est bon. t2
