    Saw the doc (and the one on Sinead and the one on Nick Cave/Warren Ellis) this past weekend. Really enjoyed it. I had no idea of the infighting, etc, that had been going on in that band. Very insightful and worth seeing.


    • Oh the doc is just beautiful. It really brought me back to my teen years. This is worth buying.
      Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?


      • Definitely think so.
