Black metal movie "Until the Light Takes Us" 4/5 stars


8 Dic 2009, 2:38

Until the Light Takes Us tells the story of black metal. Part music scene and part cultural uprising, black metal rose to worldwide notoriety in the mid-nineties with a rash of suicides, murders, and church burnings.

The documentary goes behind the highly sensationalized media reports of "Satanists running amok in Europe" to examine the complex and largely misunderstood principles that led to this rebellion against both Christianity and modern culture.

he result is a poignant, moving story that's as much about the idea that reality is composed of whatever the most people believe, regardless of what's actually true, as it is a music scene that blazed a path of murder and arson across the northern sky.

    NegruVoda: You're incorrect. It showed for a limited engagement before getting distribution, and now has distribution and has regular show times. 30 seconds of perusing the web site or reading one of the linked articles could have told you that. Why did you fail to do this?

    because I really didn't give a fuck when some stupid movie was playing in houston, I just took the most readily available information and put two and two together.

    Or you just assumed that the scenario that was most convenient to your agenda was the correct one. Sounds kind of like the thrashing of an ideologue to me.

    Good argument!

    it is, because I didn't think of any other scenario besides the one I already mentioned, I'll leave the postulation of every possible highly unlikely hypothetical scenario to the aspies

    I can't help but look at the guy in the poster and think to myself, "What an idiot."
