#37 No Distance Left to Run (2010) Dir. Dylan Southern & Will Lovelace
I’m thriving on Blur at the moment so this documentary was an easy option. It’s a great portrait of a band’s rise and fall told from the four people at the heart of it all. I guess it’d be cliche to say it’s really a film about friendship and all that but that’s what comes across the most. The way Albarn and Coxon talk affectionately about each other is pretty touching at points. The footage from Blur’s 2009 headlining slot at Glastonbury where Damon is moved to the point of intense sobbing is an incredible moment. What a fantastic band, great to have them back. Fan of Blur or not this is worth checking out, the two guys behind it have also directed the upcoming LCD Soundsystem movie Shut Up and Play The Hits and if this is anything to go by, they’re the perfect choice.
