MOVIE REVIEW

TITLE: We Are X

DESCRIPTION: 2016 documentary about the Japanese heavy metal band X Japan.

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY: Stephen Kijak, He previously did documentaries about the Backstreet Boys and The Rolling Stones.

STARRING:

STUDIO: Drafthouse Films

MY TAKE: It was okay. I never heard of them. My biggest nitpick is that was all about Yoshiki acting emo, which is a shame because I thought the suicide and cult involvement of his bandmates Tajii and Toshi was more interesting.

NOTES:
  • Premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
