Vinyl VOD // Hot Docs at Home
Touted by Pitchfork as among its 20 most essential music documentaries, Alan Zweig’s cult favourite mines the comedy and tragedy of obsessive record collecting, assembling an all-star lineup of audiophiles, store clerks, DJs, Elvis fanatics and hot jazz enthusiasts. There’s the guy with half a million records crammed into his two-bedroom apartment, and the guy who spent years playing every single record in his collection in alphabetical order. But it’s quickly obvious these unforgettable characters are driven by more than just a passion for LPs, EPs, 78s and 45s. With an astute use of mirror confessionals throughout the film, Zweig spins music appreciation a smart and self-reflexive admission about love, longing, compulsion and futility.
With a special introduction by Alan Zweig.
