You lucky Sundancers that get to see this before I do, I hate you all! “Shut Up And Play The Hits” follows James Murphy and the rest of the LCD Soundsystem during their final few days as a band, culminating in an epic sold out, four hour show at Madison Square Garden last April 4th.
SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS is both a narrative film documenting this once in a life time performance and an intimate portrait of James Murphy as he navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the personal and professional ramifications of his decision.
I already can’t wait for SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS PART 2: THE REUNION TOUR. The film was directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace and the film will probably be in art theaters in the spring.
