The Pixies formed in 1986 and broke up in 1992, for reasons never fully explained. What is made clear in this film is the Pixies don’t sit around back stage and discuss their feelings much or anything else for that matter. As a group they seem entirely un-cohesive and uncommunicative. But somehow they’re still able to sync on stage and remain the coolest rock band still in existence. How is it possible for very flawed, even prosaic people to be so effing cool?
Another thing that I found kind of surprising is that the Pixies, particularly bassist Kim Deal, fresh out of rehab and sober for the first time in her adult life, seems genuinely surprised by the overwhelming enthusiasm of Pixie fans.
All in all a good flick and an absolute must see for Pixies fans.
