Three Minute Review #2: Breadcrumb Trail (2014)

breadcrumb-trail-poster

This superb documentary about the defunct (sort of) post-rock band Slint doesn’t attempt to address the mystique created following their dissolution; merely acknowledge it. Once the songs on Spiderland, the band’s second album, were released, it was up to listeners to absorb, filter and interpret; then share by word-of-mouth (the most effective endorsement even in the days of Twitter). By this time, the members had all moved onto other projects. You could take other things from this documentary, but it remains objective throughout, neither revealing too much about the personal lives of the creators nor their anxieties from the difficult birth process. In the end, it’s just a record. A really fucking great record.

10/10
