Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That! (2006)

Directed By: Nathanial Hornblower

Starring: Mike Diamond, Adam Horovitz and Adam Yauch

Synopsis:

Awesome; Fans Fuckin’ Shot That!

 Musings:

I normally wouldn’t review a musical documentary but I wanted to pay tribute to the late great MCA. I am still saddened by the loss of such an amazing artist, MC, director, producer, bassist, lyricist and humanitarian.

Some very creative seeds were planted to make this Rockumentary happen. To give out so many cameras and capture the full concert going experience was an amazing idea. You get a unique point of view of the concert, from the guy taking a leak in the men’s washroom to the person hyping up the audience in the nosebleeds – it made me feel like I was there. It managed to capture the genius and energy of The Beastie Boys in less than 90 minutes.

Adam Yauch created lasting memories for the people that got to shoot this video as well as all the people that have and will see it. An absolute must for any fan of music.

Problem: If it was shot 6 years later it would have been HD

Mood for watching: Pumped

What to eat and drink: White Castle and Chivas

If I made it: I would be friends with the Beasties

Why watch: To pay respect
