“Bring the Soul: The Movie,” about Korean boy band BTS’s Love Yourself world tour, is less a concert movie than a chronicle of the logistics of touring in one of the biggest pop bands in the world.
Filmed by Park Jun-Soo in Pennebaker-esque verité, the film follows the Hallyu septet as they rehearse, take red-eye flights across continents and oceans, and otherwise power through the exhaustion of their global tour.
The interspersed scenes of their performances act as punctuation to the arduous task of preparation, moments in which the haggard and jetlagged young men snap into focus and put on their carefully choreographed, overwhelming productions.
These concerts in turn only further tire the members of the band, who give so much that merely four shows into the 22-date North American and European leg of their tour, they all look on the verge of collapse.
Mac Miller and music producer Rick Rubin discuss the difficulties of getting personal on record, but also the potential rewards that come with that vulnerability, in a poignant clip from the Showtime docuseries “Shangri-La.”
The segment was filmed while Miller was working on what would become his final album, “Swimming,” which was released just a month before he died in September 2018.
In the clip, Rubin compliments Miller on his turn to more “songy, personal” tracks, prompting Miller to reply, “It’s been an interesting journey for me to realize that the goal here is just to be as much me as possible.”
The four-part docuseries offers a glimpse into Rubin’s world as he works and chats with an array of musicians including the Avett Brothers, Lil Yachty, SZA, and Santana.
Nearly two years after a couple of Harvey Weinstein exposés helped kick off the #MeToo movement, the Weinstein Company co-founder has remained in the headlines as reported settlement negotiations with his accusers continue and accusers step forward with claims against other alleged sexual predators.
On Wednesday, amid news of the latest man felled in part by the #MeToo movement, Jeffrey Epstein, Hulu released the trailer and announced the premiere date for “Untouchable,” the Ursula Macfarlane-directed documentary about the precipitous fall of Weinstein, the once-powerful movie producer.
The trailer includes accusers Rosanna Arquette, Hope Exiner d’Amore, Paz de la Huerta, Zelda Perkins, Erika Rosenbaum, Caitlin Dulany, Louise Godbold, and Nannette Klatt.
While comprising just a fraction of Weinstein’s 91 accusers, they offer a look at the effect that Weinstein’s alleged conduct has wrought.
We’re only two months away from the premiere of Ken Burns’ “Country Music,” a massive documentary that explores the history of the music genre.
The PBS film is directed and produced by Ken Burns, co-produced by Julie Dunfey, and written by Dayton Duncan, the masterminds behind documentaries about everything from the Civil War and Lewis and Clark to baseball and national parks.
The Boot’s staff members have been making their way through the documentary’s eight episodes, but they can’t share everything just yet.
However, after gleaning information from three press events, documentary previews, and an interview with Burns himself, here is everything “The Boot” can share about “Country Music.”
