    Default Films about music

    Recommend some! Not necessarily biopics, most of which Ive probably seen.

    Later I will stun you with the revelation of the best film about music ever made.

    Tell me more about the Russells. I have but a hazy memory of them.

    I really enjoyed 'Eight Days a Week' recently, but you've probably seen that one.

    As cheesy as 'Sing Street' was, I think it really captured the typical teenage love affair with music, the way music glamorises life in a boring place, the joy of writing songs and band practices with your mates.

    Isn't 'Love and Mercy' supposed to be good? The Brian Wilson biopic.

    Can anyone tell me if 'Walk the Line' is worth watching?

    Walk the line is worthy but dull. Commitments did not age well, but is a good pick cos it actually tries to talk about what music means rather than just play it by the numbers. Will have to check out the Wilson thing.

    Anything more metaphysical? 'Saddest music in the world' was by far the biggest disappointment.
