The Music Documentary Is Dead…Long Live Arcade Fire’s Miroir Noir

Arcade Fire’s Miroir Noir is streaming for FREE on Pitchfork this week.

Win Hypnotized

Part 1: The Band Gets Hypnotized

The film documents the band over the course of 2006 and 2007 in concert, in the studio, getting “artistic”, and a running gag/joke about their faux infomercial phone messages from fans (or band members?) marketing the release of their last album Neon Bible.

Part 2- "I don't judge people for not understanding, but not believing the Neon Bible is an unforgivable sing. <shrugs> It's just wrong."

Part 2- 2:40 "I don't judge people for not understanding, but not believing the Neon Bible is an unforgivable sing. It's just wrong."

Pitchfork breaks the 70 minute film into 7 segments.

Part 3- 10:10 Win records "Keep the Car Running" vocals outside a church; 14:16 Fan hate voicemail

If you’re an Arcade Fire fan it goes without saying that you should watch this film which is mostly shot by La Blogotheque and Take Away Show documentarian Vincent Moon, so be prepared for grainy, artsy… oh lets just call it what it is, French filmmaking.

Part 4- 5:53 Win cuts a rug; 7:44 Arcade Fire consider suing homeless people?

It’s pretty great. Part 5 experiences technical difficulties, skip it.
