I wish there were some more traditional documentary elements in there. I would have liked to hear some interview segments where they might talk about the process of creating the albums and their thoughts about them more than two hours of unstructured home video.>>3413139
There's really not much to tell. It was all about the production and tours of the last two albums, with almost no mention of the characters at all. It was fun and I'm glad I saw it, but it was just as uninformative as we all feared.
Jamie did say that "ideally, Daffy Duck would be playing bass" when talking about Ace, so there was that.
Something about them calling the film "Reject False Icons" really bothers me, though. That slogan was like the thesis statement of Phase One, and it was the philosophical substance of the band. But there isn't even the remotest acknowledgement of the phrase or what it means to Gorillaz in the entire movie. It just feels disingenuous.
However, I do think seeing some of my least favorite songs from Humanz recorded and performed gave me a new appreciation for them. I hate We Got The Power, but one of the live performances sounded really cool. Wish they used it for the album.
Also, Seye was the best part of the whole thing.
